Live performances back at Le Trappeur
With the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, local sites are wasting no time in getting back to normalcy.
Inuvik’s Mad Trapper pub kicked off the month with two weekends of live acts, first with Mark Stevens on March 5 and 6 and an open mic this Saturday March 12.
The stage is open to all and the show starts at 10 p.m.
Veterinarian in town
Any dogs, cats or other four-legged residents of Inuvik in need of an exam can visit a veterinary clinic open March 8-13.
Dr. John Overell is in town for non-surgical appointments including vaccinations, medications, deworming, health checks, nail trimming and microchipping.

Bingo is back
A sure sign that things are getting back to normal, the Town of Inuvik resumed bingo permits and card sales starting March 1.
All bingos in the city were suspended during the month of February after Covid-19 outbreaks overwhelmed the Beaufort Delta.
Anyone playing is asked to continue to practice safe Covid-19 and disease control practices – staying home if sick, sanitizing their hands and wearing a mask if necessary.
Gwich’in after school
More opportunities for children to learn Gwich’in continue to open up in town, with a Gwich’in language camp ending this week.
From March 7 to 11 in the afternoon, the U18 after-school camp offered fun activities, songs, videos and games, all focused on learning Gwich’in.
Keep an eye out for the Western Arctic Youth Collective, which spearheads the programming.
