Who We Are
Frustrated with having to buy everything online and sight-unseen, the idea was born to start Whitehorse's only shop dedicated to health professionals and public safety professionals. We offer quality apparel, first aid supplies, footwear and education for both professional health workers and laypeople.
Tundra Medical Resources is dedicated to providing the highest level of wilderness and tactical medical knowledge, instruction, equipment and expertise to clientele in Northern Canada. Operating in the Yukon for over a decade, we believe in "training like it's real" to provide the highest level of remote medical expertise to you, our clients - and therefore to your staff and clients. We are Whitehorse-based but will travel to your location to provide training.
Tundra Medical resources recognizes our front line healthcare providers and First Responders in the Territory, and strives to provide them with the highest quality clothing and tools for their professions. We are committed to carrying the supplies and equipment you need, and are always open to suggestions of additional items.
Partnering with Wilderness Medical Associates Canada, the Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation and numerous quality equipment suppliers, we bring cutting edge education and supplies where they are needed.
