Paulatuk is a hamlet located in the Inuvik Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. It is located adjacent to Darnley Bay, in the Amundsen Gulf. The town was named for the coal that was found in the area in the 1920s, and the Siglitun spelling is Paulatuuq, "place of coal". The area has been inhabited by humans, including the Thule and Copper Inuit, since roughly 1000 AD. Most recently, it is part of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. Paulatuk was incorporated as a hamlet in 1987 and celebrated the 50th anniversary of its settlement in 2015. DemographicsIn 2014 the Government of the Northwest Territories reported that the population was 304 with an average yearly growth rate of -0. 4 from 2001. At the 2011 census, Paulatuk had a population of 313, an increase of 6. 5% over the 2006 Census. In the 2006 census 265 people were listed as Aboriginal and of these, 260 were Inuit (Inuvialuit). The two principal languages spoken in Paulatuk are Inuvialuktun and English. CommunityThe community is situated on Letty Harbour and was settled in the 1920s. This was followed a few years later by the Roman Catholic Church which opened a trading post. In the 1950s a Distant Early Warning Line site was built about 95km to the northeast at Cape Parry, on the Parry Peninsula, providing a wage based income for the community. The trading post was taken over by the local co-op and today the local store is part of The North West Company.
