Déline is located near the headwaters of the Bear River on the north shore of one of the world’s largest lakes, Great Bear Lake. A Sahtu Settlement area community, Deline has a stable population with a relatively high level of education and fluency in the North Slavey language. There is a well-equipped hotel, and anglers and hunters are attracted to the area. Residents have a variety of employment options, including rotational work in the Sahtu region.

Deline is accessible only by North-Wright Airways from Norman Wells in summer, and served by an ice road in winter. Ehtseo Ayha (Great Grandfather Ayha) School offers K-12, and there is an Aurora College Community Learning Centre. Local services include groceries, the hotel, a health centre and an RCMP detachment.
