Very interesting place and nice shot! What people do on this inhospitable land, is it a scentific base? Best regards from Italy, piero.

Hi Piero! Nice of you to visit. To answer your question, There are about 30 remote arctic communities. Many of them were displaced southern Inuit that were moved to certain locations because of the Arctic Sovereignty rights for Canada. Some of the jobs are government jobs and services such as grocery stores etc. A big thing happening in the arctic the past 10 years or so is the discovery of diamonds, gold and other resources. Many of the jobs now are in mining and this is increasing very quickly. This is now becoming the leading job recruitment for the arctic. Some of the Inuit still hunt and fish for a living but is slowly dying out. You can visit most of the communities through my photo's of the arctic. Take care! Tim
