About Us

Welcome to Mamaqtuq! We are a new restaurant located in Inuvik, Canada – committed to honoring the rich culinary traditions of the Inuvialuit people while providing a unique and immersive dining experience for our customers.

While our Inuvialuit Head Chef develops our full dining menu, we take pride in our dedication to sourcing our ingredients ethically and sustainably, and promoting sustainable food practices.

Established in 1984 to manage the settlement outlined in the Inuvialuit Final Agreement, Inuvialuit Regional Corporation represents the collective interests of Inuvialuit in and beyond the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). IRC works to continually improve the economic, social, and cultural wellbeing of the Inuvialuit through the implementation of the IFA and by all other available means.

At Mamaqtuq, we are more than just a restaurant – we are a cultural and educational destination that is dedicated to promoting Inuvialuit culture and tradition.

As we prepare for our grand opening, we are committed to building a strong foundation for our business that supports our mission and values. We are dedicated to supporting our local community and promoting sustainable food practices by working closely with local hunters, fishermen, and gatherers to source our ingredients.

Whether you’re a local resident looking for a taste of Inuvialuit cuisine or a cultural and educational tourist interested in experiencing and learning about Inuvialuit culture, we welcome you to join us on this exciting culinary journey. We are still putting the finishing touches on our restaurant, but we encourage you to check back often for updates and news about our grand opening.
