Many communities in Canada’s High Arctic are inaccessible by road or rail. Everything, including people, fuel, food and vehicles, arrives by plane or sealift, making everyday items expensive. This region has the highest costs of living in Canada. In the smaller communities, living off the land and eating “country” (traditional) food are woven into the very fabric of being Inuit. Their lives still follow the Arctic’s seasons and the bounty provided by its land, water and sea ice.
