Located in northeastern Alberta, Cold Lake was originally three communities; Grand Centre, Cold Lake and Medley came together to form one community, which is now home to almost 15,000 people.
The city’s economy is largely impacted by military spending at Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake. Every year Cold Lake hosts troops from around the world to partake in Exercise Maple Flag. Thanks to the abundance of open space, NATO and other allied forces can make use of the free terrain. The exercise takes place over four to six weeks, in which time the city’s hospitality industry is considerably boosted.

We’re doing our part to combat wastefulness in the shipping container industry. An astonishing 56% of shipping containers worldwide are laying in a junkyard, doing nothing. It’s very resource intensive to move these containers to a smelting plant and to process them. The best way to negate this environmental cost is to not let a container go to waste. We recycle at a grassroots level by repurposing used containers so they can serve on projects for years to come.
