Region 1, Northwest Territories
Region 1 is the name of a Statistics Canada census division, one of six in the Northwest Territories, Canada. It was introduced in the 2011 census, along with Regions 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, resulting in the abolition of the former census divisions of Fort Smith Region and Inuvik Region (the latter not to be confused with the modern-day administrative region of the same name).
It comprises the northern and western part of the Northwest Territories, with its main economic centre in the town of Inuvik. The 2011 census reported a population of 6,712 and a land area of 365,094.37 km2 (140,963.72 sq mi).
