2018 – Congratulations Hamlet of Ulukhaktok!

2017 – Congratulations Clyde River!

In 2017, several communities entered the Great Northern Drinking Water Contest trophy. The two top-placed contenders, Clyde River and Cape Dorset (which took home the trophy last year), were tied when all the ratings were in. The judges solved the problem by introducing an extra quality that was tested, and the winning community was determined to be Clyde River. Ningiutchiak Tigullaraq of Clyde River joyfully accepted the 2017 trophy from President Olivia Lee.

2016 – Congratulations Cape Dorset!

There were 12 communities competing for the Great Northern Drinking Water Contest trophy, the most there have ever  been!  Arviat, Behchoko, Cape Dorset, Fort Liard, Fort Simpson, Fort Smith, Gjoa Haven, Hay River, Inuvik, Norman Wells, Paulatuk and Tsiigehtchic all entered samples. The Municipality of Cape Dorset was the winner and took home the coveted trophy with Steven Faichney and David Saila accepting the award from Board member Justin Hazenberg!
