Where Life is Inextricably Connected to the Land

Situated in the vast Canadian arctic, the Northwest Territories is an unparalleled expanse, rich in biological diversity. This is the only region of Canada that officially recognizes 11 different languages—nine of which are Indigenous. Life here is inextricably connected to the land: spiritually, economically, socially, culturally.
