Who is Sub-Arctic?

Since our inception in 1992 by Bruce Hewlko, Sub-Arctic has prepared approximately 33% of the Plans of Survey registered in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

In March of 2018, Sub-Arctic joined with Challenger Geomatics, another experienced and well-established northern firm, to become surveyor of choice for projects across the Canadian North.

Servicing The North

Together with a strong team of dedicated and experienced surveyors, we have been involved in the exploration and construction phase of every diamond mine in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.


From -40 to +30, our equipment and staff are prepared to complete your job in a cost-efficient and accurate manner.


Experience is what counts! Our surveyors and experienced project managers have worked in nearly every community and region over decades of working in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.


We have an excellent history of working in Northern Communities. Our contacts and local knowledge throughout the territories will solidify a reliable start to any project. We can help to facilitate lodging, vehicle rentals, supplies, charters or other logistic needs for our clients.

A Strong Partner

As a Challenger Geomatics company, together we have a wide range of experience and depth of resources to offer an unparalleled range of survey, mapping and geomatics capabilities tailored for Canada’s North, delivered from an office network spanning all three territories and beyond.
