Through the Wapasu Creek Lodge and its sister lodges, Athabasca Lodge and Beaver River Executive Lodge, PTI provides first- class accommodations to oil sands operators, their employees and contractors. We are setting the new standard for remote site accommodations in the oil sands region where we believe our top-notch service can make a difference in the quality of a customer's daily work experience."
