About Inuvik GSAR

Inuvik Ground Search & Rescue provides winter-focused, land-based mission capability throughout the Beaufort Delta.

The mandate of Inuvik Ground Search and Rescue is to locate and rescue lost persons within our jurisdiction, in the best possible condition. However, Inuvik Ground Search and Rescue may also serve the community in many other ways, including evidence searches with local police authorities, wilderness survival and education sessions for children and adults, evacuations or other civil emergency responses in cooperation with other agencies.

Inuvik Ground Search and Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Inuvik GSAR receives some in-kind support from various organizations to support its operations.  While these contributions assist in operations, the majority of Inuvik GSAR’s operations are funded by the community through local fund raising activities.
