Welcome to Deline
Birthplace of Hockey, Home to the biggest lake trouts in the world, and Only community on the western shore of Great Bear Lake.
Introducing Deline and the Community
Deline is located on the shores of pristine Great Bear Lake in the heart of the spectacular Northwest Territories.
Deline is the birthplace of hockey. Yes, this is where it all started. Sir John Franklin's diary provides the earliest documentary evidence of hockey being played -- here in Deline!
Our culture is all about the amazingly beautiful Great Bear Lake. You can easily guess how trout and other types of fish play a big role in our community.
