Tuktoyaktuk

Tuktoyaktuk, or Tuktuuyaqtuuq, (meaning "place resembling a caribou") is found amidst a landscape dotted with huge ice-covered hills known as pingos and situated on the edge of the Beaufort Sea. With a population around 1000, it is the major Inuvialuit community within the Inuvialuit Settlement Region.

Still very much a traditional whaling town, Tuktoyaktuk has prepared itself for an expected increase in tourism. In the fall of 2017, an all-season highway will open to connect the community to Inuvik and the rest of Canada. 

In the 1980s the community was the centre of oil and gas activities in the Western Arctic. Today, there are still large reserves of oil and gas both on and offshore near Tuktoyaktuk.
