Whether in Yellowknife, Inuvik, Hay River or Fort Smith, there are various real estate agencies ready to offer you accommodation. The price of rents is high (from $1000 for a 3 and ½). Most agencies will have you sign a lease and require a deposit equivalent to one month’s rent. It is therefore strongly recommended to visit the accommodations beforehand. In addition, it is necessary to pay sums for public services such as: electricity, telephone and heating. The cost of some of these services may be included in the rent.

In order to avoid these installation costs on your arrival, you can share or rent a room.
