This is a vibrant city full of friendly people with lots to see and do. With a population of just over 20,000, you’ll see we have a small town feel along with everything you expect in a big city.
The Northwest Territories is some of the last wilderness of North America to be tamed – home to vast forests, deep lakes, extreme cold, warm Teepees and the spectacular Aurora Borealis. Come visit!
The aurora, or northern lights, are a natural phenomenon caused when electrically charged particles from the sun enter the earth’s atmosphere. The particles are pulled by the earth’s magnetic force, which channels them towards our geomagnetic poles.
