Ivvavik National Park is one of the most isolated parks in North America, and rescue services and facilities are limited. It is important for visitors to be self-sufficient, self-reliant, and capable of handling emergencies. Parks Canada has a search and rescue team based in Inuvik, however, rescue operations are dependent on weather, aircraft or staff availability. Response times could be anywhere from 1-2 days or more depending on the circumstances. Additionally, due to the impacts of COVID-19, technical mountain and swift water rescue services are greatly reduced.
