Preliminary Research on Iqaluit – living, working, …


Just a start to look into this place.

Iqaluit (ᐃᖃᓗᐃᑦ) – ‘place of many fish’ – is the capital of Nunavut and regional centre of government for Qikiqtaaluk. Located at the head of Frobisher Bay, the tides rise and fall up to nine metres (30 feet) twice a day. Nearby Sylvia Grinnell River has excellent char fishing. Iqaluit is the largest and fastestgrowing community in the territory, with a population of 6,184 residents listed in the 2006 Statistics Canada census. It is the political, business, educational and journalism centre of Nunavut, yet it is also the home of many Inuit artists, filmmakers and musicians.
