Nunavut building centre gets new home

EPLS Home Hardware Building Centre in Arviat, Nunavut, has moved into a new home thanks to a financing partnership with Royal Bank of Canada. CEO Ryan St. John’s father Don founded the store some 50 years ago, facilitating the provision of building supplies to the fly-in community.

“Each time we’ve pitched an idea, whether it was to expand or improve facilities or any growth opportunities where we required financing, they’ve been at the table every time,” Ryan St. John said of RBC. The new building houses an RBC outlet to serve Arviat’s banking needs.
