Working in the outdoor and tourism industry has its perks.

Our staff are eligible for a 15% discount on most activities offered by partners listed on explorenordegg.ca. Talk to Danielle to book your adventure.
Most of our staff are eligible for pro deals from various outdoor industry brands. Eligibility is set by each brand, depending on your position and certifications. The brands listed below have usually approved our staff who have applied to their pro programs. They are also brands that we use in our operations and have had a positive experience working with them, making it easy for us to recommend them to our guests and staff.
In general, companies will require a copy of a recent pay stub with the sensitive information blacked out. Talk to Danielle if you require an introduction letter or additional information.
Keep in mind that pro deals are a privilege and that there are conditions and expectations associated with them. Failure to comply with those terms may result in termination of your employment with us.
