There have been concerns brought forth by residents of Iqaluit that there are events of target practice and discharging firearms in the Upper base/Plateau area.

As per the City of Iqaluit Firearms Control Bylaw No. 367:

3.1 No person shall discharge any Firearm within the Town of Iqaluit.

3.. The Council may authorize a properly licensed and controlled firing range within the boundaries of town.

The City thanks you for your understanding.
