About The City of Iqaluit
Iqaluit – Inuktitut for "many fish" – is located near the mouth of the Sylvia Grinnell River, which empties into Frobisher Bay. With a population of nearly 8000, Iqaluit is Canada’s smallest capital City. The City is currently experiencing a period of rapid development and population growth. As the largest community in Nunavut, Iqaluit is a growing community, unique in its role as a major business, transportation, administrative, health and education centre. Similar to other municipalities in Nunavut, Iqaluit is also a major landowner, responsible for the administration and development of municipal lands, which further creates a unique planning context.
If you love the outdoors, you will fall in love with our city for its year-round activities. Frobisher Bay is a great kite-skiing destination in the winter, as well as a snowmobilers playground. In the spring and summer, fishing, kayaking, boating and hiking are just some of the activities that can be enjoyed.
