Learn More About Fort Resolution, Northwest Territories

Fort Resolution (Deninu Kue "moose island") is a hamlet in the South Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. The community is situated at the mouth of the Slave River, on the shore of Great Slave Lake, and at the end of Fort Resolution Highway (Highway 6).
It is the oldest documented community in the Northwest Territories, built in 1819, and was a key link in the fur trade's water route north. Fort Resolution is designated as a National Historic Site of Canada as the oldest continuously occupied place in the Northwest Territories with origins in the fur trade and the principal fur trade post on Great Slave Lake.
Fort Resolution features "Deninoo School", offering schooling for children K-12. The town also has a hockey arena, community hall, 2 nursing station, Youth Center, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, bed and breakfast, a 'Northern' general store with a "Quick-Stop" convenience store, Two diners and two gas stations. A small airport, Fort Resolution Airport, services charter and medivac flights only. The oldest building in town is the historic Roman Catholic Church, built in the early 19th century. A second, Protestant, church offers an alternative worship option. The beach along Great Slave Lake is a prime spot for summer swimming, bird watching, fishing or relaxing. Local people engage in fishing, hunting, and trapping year-round.
The nearby site of Pine Point was once a thriving lead mine. When the value of lead plummeted in the 1980s, the Pine Point Mine closed, and the township was evacuated. Pine Point houses were sold cheaply, and many of the buildings were then moved to Fort Resolution (including the hockey arena), Hay River and Northern Alberta.
"Deninoo Days" in late August celebrate the beginning of moose hunting season with parades, traditional races, games and talent competitions. Recreational opportunities include camping, canoeing and fishing (self-guided, or available through several outfitters). "Little Buffalo River Crossing" is a nearby territorial park, with historical and natural attractions, accessible by road and featuring a campground with 12 sites.
