Community Corporations

Under the IFA, each Inuvialuit community, including Aklavik, Inuvik, Paulatuk, Sachs Harbour, Tuktoyaktuk, and Ulukhaktok has a Community Corporation which is made up of six elected Directors and one elected Chair. Through these corporations, eligible Inuvialuit beneficiary members directly control Inuvialuit Regional Corporation (IRC) and its subsidiaries.
