Mackenzie Road.

Are you thinking, planning or already packed and ready to move to Inuvik?

First of all, that is great news. We are almost certain that you will enjoy the unique northern flair of our vibrant Arctic community.

Once you arrive, the colour and vitality of Inuvik will take you by surprise. You'll see paved streets lined with brightly coloured houses on pilings, dome-shaped buildings and the strange snakelike utilidor system. Inuvik offers the comforts of urban living in an arctic setting.

Please utilize the following information to discover our resources and amenities and discover what it is like to live 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. Before arriving in Inuvik, we suggest researching the area through Google, YouTube and Social Media. It will be beneficial in acclimatizing to your new home and connecting with the community when you do arrive.

Getting to Inuvik is quite simple. If you are looking for an adventure on your way North and would like to cross the Arctic Circle, why not drive the Dempster Highway from Dawson City, YK on Canada’s only all-weather road. You will experience the winding unpaved gravel roads whilst admiring the local flora and fauna.

If you are coming from further a field or would prefer to fly North over the mountains, we have three airlines that serve the North and Inuvik: Air North and Canadian North. Depending on your location you may need to arrange a flight with another airline before connecting to a Northern Airline, so please consider your connection dates and times.
