Canship Innu Marine LP is a partnership between Innu Development Limited Partnership and Canship Ugland Ltd., a Canadian ship owner and management company. Canship Innu Marine LP supplies hard to reach communities via the well-loved MV Northern Ranger cargo ferry. This branch primarily provides ferry service from Harbour Grace to Natuashish but can service additional Labrador communities.

The Northern Ranger built in 1986 – with a registered tonnage of 2573, has the capacity to carry 200 tons of cargo and 27 passenger cabins, making it an important provider for supplies and transportation.

The MV Northern Ranger had previously spent 30 years serving Labrador’s coastal towns, now under new ownership of the Mushuau Innu First Nation (MIFN) and operated by Canship Innu Marine LP she is ready to service the communities once again.

The vessel departs Harbour Grace each Monday, bi-weekly, between June and November. Please see the service page for schedules and operational updates.
