Superior Strategies Supply & Service is a wholly Indigenous owned business based in Thunder Bay that offers a variety of safety and industrial products for different sectors in Northern Ontario. First Nations entrepreneur and owner Jason Thompson is a proud member of Red Rock Indian Band and a founding member of the Anishnawbe Business Professional Association. Jason initially started Superior Strategies to provide Health and safety Training, and it has now grown to offer a wide variety of products and services while continuing to grow and create opportunities. When the pandemic started, Superior Strategies began sourcing hand sanitizer, surgical masks, N95 masks, and other supplies for various First Nations communities and organizations in remote, rural, and urban markets. Jason’s team has stringent processes in place to ensure the company procures only reputable products within Canada or abroad, and the timely supplies have been well received by customers.
“While navigating these unprecedented times, we relied heavily on a strong supply network, domestically as well as internationally, to access and provide these products quickly and at a fair price. We have taken great pride in helping deliver essential COVID-19 related products to Indigenous communities and organizations. The strength of our team was apparent as roles and tasks changed to meet new demand. Each team member stepped up, delivering exceptional customer service, and I could not be more proud. As a small business owner for over 10 years, we learned early on the value of being flexible, especially while serving a smaller market over a vast geographical region. COVID-19 allowed us to demonstrate these skills to customers, proving we can deliver no matter the circumstance.”
Superior Strategies invites the communities it serves to reach out and explore opportunities, to share ideas or contacts to help each community prosper. Jason takes pride in his businesses and pride in the services being performed by his entire team. Superior Strategies is excited to be a local contributor to the change that is taking place relative to the Inclusion of Indigenous People in Northern Ontario and Canada.
“We are also very excited to announce we will soon be launching Warrior Supplies, which will carry a variety of COVID related supplies, as well as workwear and uniform apparel. We are excited for what the future holds, for not only us, but for everyone in the North.”
