On September 1st, 2010, the Zubaidah Tallab Foundation, a Muslim charity based in Winnipeg, sent a mosque across Canada to the small arctic town of Inuvik, Northwest Territories.
"ARCTIC MOSQUE" is the story of this little mosque's epic 4500 km journey across Canada by road and river. As the northernmost mosque in the western hemisphere establishes its roots in the arctic permafrost, so too does the small yet eclectic community of Inuvik Muslims who carve out a unique Canadian identity as they find friendship and a home amongst some of the oldest cultures in Canada.
