Success Stories

Khutzeymateen Wilderness Lodge Ltd. - Skeena-Queen Charlotte, BC

Community Futures 16/37 helped clients re-structure long term debt by assisting with loans.

Founded by two individuals in 2015, Khutzeymateen Wilderness Lodge has developed into a world-class tour operator and wildlife viewing guide, gaining recognition from Air Canada Enroute magazine, British Columbia Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine, among others.

Sheltered by the Coast Mountains, just south of the Alaska panhandle on British Columbia’s wild north coast, lies the K'tzim-a-deen (Khutzeymateen) Inlet. Here, within the traditional territory of the Tsimshian Nation, lives a healthy and indomitable population of coastal grizzly bears. Located within this unique conservancy and grizzly bear sanctuary, the Khutzeymateen Wilderness Lodge is your home and gateway to view these magnificent animals in a natural and unspoiled wilderness area. Khutzeymateen Wilderness Lodge is the only permitted lodge within the Khutzeymateen Protected Area. The floating lodge offers an opportunity to enjoy all the comforts of home with plenty of room to stretch out and take in the awe-inspiring wilderness.
