Safety , Canada Command can allocate military resources to assist civil authorities in humanitarian capacity, and if the Emergencies Act is activated, in peace enforcement capacity. The command can also be called to coordinate military resources in support of law enforcement and federal agencies as part of an Integrated Security Unit during large national events. This was the case during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the 2010 G-8 Huntsville summit (36th G8 summit) and the 2010 G-20 Toronto summit. Routine operations conducted by Canada Command include the deployment of support elements to various Royal Canadian Mounted Police operations, Fisheries and Oceans Canada's Canadian Coast Guard in sea and coastal patrol and the war on drugs in the Caribbean, and Parks Canada in security enforcement and avalanche control. The command is also the main coordinator of joint exercises, such as the annual Operation Nanook (Operation Nanook (disambiguation)), and a multitude of field exercises and manoeuvres. The control and coordination of military resources placed under Canada Command is assumed at the national level and through six regional task forces: * Joint Task Force (North), based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, includes all Canadian territories north of the 60th parallel: Yukon, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut; * Joint Task Force (Pacific), based at the CFB Esquimalt naval base in British Columbia and commanded by the Commander of Maritime Forces Pacific, includes British Columbia, its coastlines and the Pacific maritime approaches; Buffalo Air Express Buffalo also operates a courier service as Buffalo Air Express which started in 1982 83.

Originally known as the CBC Northern Service, its first operations began in 1958 with radio broadcasts (including the takeover of CFYK (CFYK (AM))—originally a Royal Canadian Signal Corps-owned, community-run station in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, which began broadcasting in 1948). Around the same time, the CBC took over CHFC in Fort Churchill (then an army camp in northern Manitoba); the station had previously run a variety of programs, including American AFRS shows. Peter Mansbridge is its most distinguished alumnus. The station in Churchill was closed in the late 1970s and moved to Rankin Inlet as CBQR-FM. The primary CBC North television production centre is in Yellowknife (CFYK (CFYK-TV)), with smaller production centres in Whitehorse (Whitehorse, Yukon) (CFWH (CFWH-TV)) and Iqaluit (CFFB (CFFB-TV)). The CBC North television service is seen through a network of both CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)-owned and community-owned rebroadcasters in virtually all communities in the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, and Nunavut. CBC North is essentially a television system within a larger network, airing the same programming as CBC Television (with some exceptions). The station airs an hour-long evening news program known as ''CBC News: Northbeat (CBC Television local newscasts)'', anchored by Randy Henderson. It was the sole local newscast that was not merged into Canada Now from 2000 to 2006. The song appears on an album of the same name (Northwest Passage (album)) released by Rogers in 1981, and is considered one of the classic songs in Canadian music history. In the 2005 CBC Radio One series ''50 Tracks: The Canadian Version'', "Northwest Passage" ranked fourth, behind only Neil Young's "Heart of Gold (Heart of Gold (Neil Young song))", Barenaked Ladies' "If I Had $1,000,000" and Ian and Sylvia's "Four Strong Winds". It has been referred to as one of Canada's unofficial anthems by Prime Minister (Prime Minister of Canada) Stephen Harper, "''Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to end by leaving you with a line from Stan Rogers’ unofficial Canadian anthem – Northwest Passage.''" Address by the Prime Minister Stephen Harper, 17 August 2006 in Yellowknife. and former Governor General (Governor General of Canada) Adrienne Clarkson quoted the song both in her first official address Canadian Encyclopedia and in her speech at the dedication of the new Canadian embassy in Berlin.

It is located on the northern shore of Great Slave Lake, approximately south of the Arctic Circle, on the west side of Yellowknife Bay near the outlet of the Yellowknife River. Yellowknife and its surrounding water bodies were named after a local Dene tribe once known as the 'Copper Indians' or 'Yellowknife Indians' (now referred to locally as the Yellowknives Dene (First Nation)) who traded tools made from copper deposits near the Arctic Coast. The current population is ethnically mixed. Of the eleven official languages of the Northwest Territories, five are spoken in significant numbers in Yellowknife: Dene Suline (Dene Suline language), Dogrib (Dogrib language), South and North Slavey (Slavey language), English (English language), and French (French language).

The Yellowknife settlement is considered to have been founded in 1934, after gold was found in the area, although commercial activity in the present day waterfront area did not begin until 1936. Yellowknife quickly became the centre of economic activity in the NWT, and was named the capital of the Northwest Territories in 1967. As gold production began to wane, Yellowknife shifted from being a mining town to a centre of government services in the 1980s.
