Citation for BC Aboriginal Business Awards Achiever

Community-Owned Business of the Year

Quinsam Shell Service Station
Campbell River


Established by the We Wai Kai First Nation in 2006, Quinsam Shell Service Station is located on the Island Highway in Campbell River. Its mission is to provide employment opportunities, contribute to North Island tourism and establish greater community connection between the Quinsam and Campbell River communities. From the outset, community and customer support has been overwhelming for the petroleum services, convenience store, car wash and recreational vehicle facility. The 16-person team operating the station has followed a well-conceived business plan that has led to annual revenue increases. Quinsam Shell Service Station is part of the Quinsam Commercial development and its profits flow to various social and economic development activities of the We Wai Kai First Nation Band.
