Welcome to The City of Iqaluit:

 

Iqaluit, is Nunavut’s Capital and Canada’s coolest arctic city! Whether you are a resident or a visitor, Iqaluit has a lot to offer. The city of Iqaluit is a vibrant community and home to Iqalummiut, a diverse mix of people from across Nunavut, Canada and around the world. They bring their skills, experience and passion as they contribute to Iqaluits’ development and growth. People of Iqaluit are one of our most valuable resources and we are working together towards a better future that will preserve the strengths of our Inuit and northern culture, while embracing the changes of the 21st century.

Our proud city continues to grow, providing many exciting social and economic opportunities. The city of Iqaluit strives to ensure that the services we provide meet the needs and aspirations of young and old, Inuit and non-Inuit, long-time and new residents, business owners and employees. Iqaluit has made a long-term commitment towards sustainable development and is expanding our municipal services to meet the growing and wide range of developmental needs. Through an inclusive planning process involving community residents and major stakeholders, we have completed the Piqutivut – Building Our Capital feasibility study and business plan, for a new Aquatic and Recreation Centre, Emergency and Protective Services Centre and City Hall.

Iqaluit serves as a gateway to all the Baffin region communities. It is also the gateway to Greenland and points east, Yellowknife and points west, Kuujjuaq and Northern Quebec, Montreal and Ottawa.

Iqaluit is a designated port of entry to Canada for international air and marine transportation. Located at the crossroads of both polar and high North Atlantic air routes, Iqaluit airport can handle any type of aircraft. Our city is a great place to stopover, vacation or choose for your meeting venue, given that we have Nunavut’s largest selection of hotels, B+Bs, restaurants and stores. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy fine dining; including a meal of locally and regionally harvested foods, such as muskox burgers, caribou steaks and pan seared arctic char, in any one of our local restaurants.

The city of Iqaluit also offers plenty of recreation activities for our residents and visitors – so come out and have some fun with us! Check out the Recreation section of this website to see all of the sports and recreation activities going on in the city. In addition to the city run programs, Iqaluit is also a great place for fishing and hiking – either around town or at the Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park. For the more adventurous person, boating, snowmobiling, and kite skiing or hunting are favored activities. Any one of our local outfitters are available to take the most adventurous jet boating or jet skiing or guide people on hiking, snowmobile, dog sled or river raft trips at the Katannilik Park situated between Iqaluit and Kimmirut.

The City of Iqaluit is also rich with Inuit culture: come visit our local Nunatta Sunakkataangit Museum; Unikkaarvik Visitor Centre; or take a boat trip to the local heritage site of Qaummaarvik Park just minutes away from the community. Inuit carvings along with local handicrafts may be purchased in a number of stores or directly from the artisan or their family members as they tour the main hot spots around town.

There are endless opportunities for everyone in our City of Iqaluit. We invite all to enjoy the mixture of small town hospitality and city amenities that make Iqaluit a great place to visit and an even better place to live!

It is a privilege and an honor for me to represent the community of Iqaluit as its Deputy Mayor. The city’s Council and Administration will strive to provide excellent services to all its residents and visitors.

We welcome your comments and encourage you to participate fully in our community.

Deputy Mayor Mary Wilman

Mission Statement
