The size and geography of the territory is hard to wrap your head around. NTPC serves a population of 43,000 people spread across 33 communities and 1.1 million square kilometres. A handful of communities have year-round road access while most others depend on a combination of ice-roads and air travel. Because of this, many of our communities are still dependent on diesel generators as a primary power source. Meanwhile, the majority of homes have internet access and many residents are as reliant on their mobile devices as any southern Canadian.

De Beers Group is the world’s leading diamond company, with expertise in diamond exploration, mining, grading, marketing and retail.

In 1993, a regional non-profit organization was established with its mandate and mission coming directly from twenty of the thirty-three Northwest Territories communities.  In January 2001, the MRA became a registered society and continues to support and promote recreation within the MRA region communities.  

Cabin Radio is owned and operated by five Yellowknife residents: Andrew Goodwin, Scott Letkeman, Sarah Pruys, Jesse Wheeler, and Ollie Williams. Cabin Radio became a thing in 2017 because we thought there was room for an independent, commercial FM radio station in Yellowknife. We’re working on that. We submitted our FM licence application to the federal regulator in August 2019 and we’re hoping they start the licensing process soon.
