Tuktut Nogait National Park is bordered on the north and west by privately-owned Inuvialuit lands. Visitors entering the park overland from the north or the west must cross these lands. Visitors crossing Inuvialuit lands are welcomed by the Inuvialuit, provided that they treat the lands with respect, that there is no damage to the lands, and that they do not interfere with Inuvialuit use and peaceful enjoyment of the lands.

Visitors intending to cross Inuvialuit lands are asked to contact the Inuvialuit Land Administration (ILA) prior to crossing, to learn of any limitations on access, and for visitors' own safety. Visitors planning to fish on Inuvialuit lands must first register with the Paulatuk Hunters and Trappers Committee (PHTC).

The addresses and telephone numbers of these organizations are as follows:
