Délı̨nę is located on the shores of Great Bear Lake, the eighth largest lake in the world. The community of just over 500 people is said to be hockey’s birthplace as the first documented game took place between Sir John Franklin’s men in the 1820s. Community access is limited to air travel except during the winter when the ice road is open. 

The local school offers Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 classes and an Aurora College Community Learning Centre offers courses for adults.
