The Town of Inuvik is the major commercial and administrative centre for the Beaufort Delta. As the third largest community in the Northwest Territories and Canada's largest north of the Arctic Circle, Inuvik is full of both realized and potential opportunity.

Whether it is installing satellite antenna, a fibre optic line connection to the south or the building of the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway, Inuvik is actively ready to welcome businesses of all kinds. Not to mention the significant gas resources that the Beaufort Delta Region is home to.

Tourism plays an important role, and has significant potential to continue to grow at a rapid pace. As accommodation facilities and attractions continue to develop through investment, the physical attractions of the region still play a large role in inviting guests to the area. Some of these include the Mackenzie and Richardson Mountains, the Arctic Ocean, the Delta, the Midnight Sun and the Aurora Borealis.

Also of note, transportation, construction, petroleum exploration and public administration are base industries in the town. 

Inuvik is situated in a unique and strategic place in Canada. Three airline companies connect the town to the south and the Dempster Highway is Canada's only all-weather highway to cross the Arctic Circle before ending in Inuvik. The Arctic Ocean is only 97 kilometres away.

All your business needs can be accommodated, including landline phone service, cellular phone service and high-speed internet connection, making Inuvik a perfect place to headquarter a business that calls the Western Arctic home.
