YELLOWKNIFE (November X, 2016) The Tlı̨chǫ Investment Corporation is happy to announce its continued commitment to investing in the Tlı̨chǫ Region and the Northern economy by its recent acquisition of 11 Peterbilt tractor units from Midnight Sun Energy, a company based in the Northwest Territories that has served the North for more than two decades.
The purchase will support Tlicho Landtran Ltd and Ventures West Transport’s upcoming busy winter road business. In recent months, the Tlı̨chǫ Investment Corporation increased its ownership in Ventures West Transport to 90% and Tlicho Landtran by 49%.

This move complements the Tlı̨chǫ Government’s August 2016 purchase of Tlicho Landtran , ensuring more benefits from the operation of these companies accrue to the Tlı̨chǫ people, its shareholders and partners.
