In May 1998, the Inuvialuit Cultural Resource Centre (now the Inuvialuit Cultural Centre) opened as a regional centre in Tuktoyaktuk with the following mandate:

  • Preserve the Inuvialuktun language with the assistance of elders. 
  • Provide support and a language curriculum for Inuvialuktun teachers. 
  • Promote the on-going development of the Inuvialuktun language. 

In April 2000, ICRC was relocated to Inuvik to better serve the region with easier access to governments and other Inuvialuit communities.
