Due to the high volume of comments this thread is getting too complex to be useful. I am now redirecting people to the Reddit discussion thread about Inuvik.
Please ask and post your questions on that thread.
SO YOU’VE DECIDED TO MOVE TO INUVIK. CONGRATULATIONS! THIS IS A VERY WELCOMING TOWN (POP. 3,500) AND AN INTERESTING REGION OF CANADA.
Surely you will enjoy life in this town: no traffic jams, no parking metres, no Christmas madness at the malls….
HERE’S SOME RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS SENT MY WAY:
“My wife and I will be moving to Inuvik in the next couple of months, and I/we have tons of questions! As there isn’t all that much information on Inuvik online, it’s been a bit tricky finding out much.
We live in Vancouver at the moment, so this will certainly be a big move for us. Mostly, I am interested in making sure we bring everything that we’ll need. What sort of vehicle is best for Inuvik? Where should we look for an apartment? Is there even such a thing as a “bad” part of town? How expensive are groceries really, I mean, should we try to bring tons of food? Do you know of any good resources for finding work in Inuvik (we are moving for a job for my wife; I am a recently graduated teacher with restaurant experience, I am crossing my fingers to find work shortly after our move). Anyhow, I just wanted to get in contact with someone who actually lives in Inuvik. Thanks for your time, I look forward to any insight you can offer. Bye for now,
