Town of Inuvik Cemetery

Situated off Airport Road, the Town of Inuvik Cemetery has a beautiful, park-like setting and is a welcoming place for visitors. Owned and maintained by the Town, efforts were recently made to expand and transform the cemetery through a $200,000 upgrade.

Included in the upgrade:

  • A new sign at the entrance.
  • A notification board, listing the names and location of people buried in the cemetery.
  • New plaques placed on the back of each burial cross bearing the person's name, date of birth and death.
  • New landscaping and drainage features.

With a total area of 4.59 acres, the developed sections are laid out into 8 phases, including a phase containing the Royal Canadian Legion's McInnes Branch Cenotaph that honours Canada's war dead and Veterans from World War II. 

Cemetery By-law No. 2047/H&S/02 regulates the operations at the Town of Inuvik Cemetery. As stated in the By-law:

  • The spouse or an immediate family member of the deceased may request permission from the Town of Inuvik to arrange for the opening and closing of the grave as part of their grieving process. Such a request will be at the sole cost of the bereaved spouse or immediate family member making the request and will be subject to them signing the Prescribed Waiver form attached as Schedule "A" and forming part of this By-law.
  • Family plots of one or more graves may be reserved by submission of a Burial Plot Reservation Permit form, and upon payment in full of the fee prescribed in Schedule "B" attached to and forming part of this By-law. Reserved plots shall not be subject to any increases in burial fees and shall be marked as "RESERVED" on the cemetery map.
  • Plots reserved before the death of the person(s) whose body or bodies are to be interred therein, shall not be transferred or sold to any other person or persons, except to resell back to the Town of Inuvik for the same price paid by the original purchaser.
  • The Grave Opening and Closing Waiver Form is available online.
