Jason Edmunds

Director, Expedition Leader

Jason is an Inuk from Nunatsiavut. He is passionate about connecting people and places, and works with local leaders to develop community-focused, socially conscious travel initiatives.

Jason grew up in the communities of Nain and Makkovik, Nunatsiavut, just twenty yards from the Atlantic Ocean. He spent his childhood extensively travelling the Labrador coast with his father—hunting, fishing, and assisting on tours and boat charters.

Now, living just twenty yards from Lake Ontario in Port Credit, Jason is a professional expedition leader, guide, and bear monitor. He believes in the power of travel as a transformative, educational experience. During the Arctic winter months, he assists in the planning of quality Arctic and sub-Arctic expeditions as a member of the operations team. Jason is an expert logistician, with experience coordinating educational and cultural tours in a wide range of environments.

Jason sits on the board for Travel Nunavut and the Indigenous Advisory Circle for the Peel Region School Board. He is also a proud member of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) and The Explorer’s Club. He is the 2020 recipient of the RCGS Martin Bergmann Medal for Excellence in Arctic Leadership and Research.
