Iqaluit is the capital city of the territory of Nunavut in Canada’s North. Home to approximately 7,000 residents, Iqaluit is a vibrant and growing community that holds much promise for the future. Located on the southern tip of Baffin Island in the arctic, it is a community accessible only by plane or boat.

Iqaluit’s populatiImageon is a diverse mix of Inuit and other races and cultures, each leaving their own mark on the city to make it a unique blend of traditional and modern ways. With over half of the residents being under the age of 25, it is important that youth have access to recreational programs and activities. Iqaluit’s cold, dark months magnify the need for vibrant indoor recreational opportunities. Youth in the north face many challenges in their daily lives including suicide, domestic violence, loneliness and poverty. Providing healthy alternatives for youth is vital to ensuring this generation grows to be productive and contributing members of our City.
