Inuvik is a town in the Northwest Territories of Canada and is the administrative centre for the Inuvik Region. The population as of the 2016 Census was 3, 243, a decrease of 6. 4% from the 2011 Census and a decrease of 7. 0% from the 2006 Census. The two previous census counts show wide fluctuations due to economic conditions: 2, 894 in 2001 and 3, 296 in 1996. In 2012 the Government of the Northwest Territories reported that the population was 3, 321 with an average yearly growth rate of 0. 2% from 2001. HistoryInuvik was conceived in 1953 as a replacement administrative centre for the hamlet of Aklavik on the west of the Mackenzie Delta, as the latter was prone to flooding and had no room for expansion. Initially called "New Aklavik", it was renamed Inuvik in 1958. The school was built in 1959 and the hospital, government offices and staff residences in 1960, when people began to live in the community: Inuvialuit, Dene and M├ętis. Naval Radio Station (NRS) Inuvik, callsign CFV, was commissioned on 10 September 1963 after operations had been successfully transferred from NRS Aklavik. Station CFV was part of the SUPRAD (Supplementary Radio) network of intercept and direction finding stations.
