Kugluktuk, formerly known as Coppermine, is located on the Coppermine River and the shores of Coronation Gulf on the Arctic Ocean. The final signing of the Nunavut Land Claim took place in Kugluktuk on July 9, 1993. July 9 is now celebrated as Nunavut Day.

Pictured here is the Kugluktuk windmill. It is less than six years old and still in the experimental stages of operation. Nunavut Power is researching the feasibility of wind generated power for the North. Currently windmills require intensive maintenance and they perform poorly in the gale-force gusts common in the North. more...
