The taiga is so immense, and definitely isn't fully explored yet. We know there's still tribes in the Amazon that aren't aware of our existence, and there might even be a few left we haven't discovered. Is it possible there are tribes like that in Canada's north, like say in a remote part of NWT or northern Saskatchewan or something?

Not likely. The area is huge, but the tree cover is not as dense as Amazonia so groups could have remained hidden from view.

Also, the harshness of the climate makes it a very sparsely populated area to begin with.

Safe to say that all groups have had at least some contact with the outside world.

It's far better explored than the Amazon. Fur traders have been active in the area for hundreds of years, and there was never even any second hand references (from one tribe about another) that doesn't correspond to a known tribe. So, despite it's vastness, it pretty well is all explored.

Also, Acajack, I can't speak for all of it, but the bush where I've been (Stony Rapids, SK, West End of Great Slave Lake, NWT) is dense enough that it's almost impenetrable. On the other hand, since one place can't support a person all year round, everybody travelled (and still does to some extent) by water, which means they're pretty easy to spot.

actually there are some un-contacted tribes in canada the most recent was a newer territory of canada in the 1970s or 80s a tone of canada is super heavily forested and is so dense its impossible to get to a tone of areas with out using the water ways my grandpa has told me stories of running in to what he thinks where some still un-contacted tribes in canada even going to visit a couple way out in the bush where no one goes some caves and even some super heavily dense forest in valleys make excellent cover from spying eyes in the air and on foot there are also a lot of tribes on rezs in canada that talk bout some uncontacted tribes its just a matter of searching but a lot could be hostile and kill just like there being rumors of an uncontacted tribe in Montana deep in the massive reserves there cheyenne to be exact there was a movie based on it said to be a true story and the location in the movie was purposely changed to protect the tribe so to say its impossible is basically a lie even in reserves in Maine 22 million acres of extremely dense forest and high mountains and valleys not all of it can be traversed by rangers to difficult to do so even by vehicle tones of places in canada and the US still dont have roads or train lines and paths that are to small for ATVS and dirt bikes that can only be walked so it is possible

Your Grandpa is wrong. Canada has gone through all of the periods of gold rush, diamond hunting, precious metals exploration and any number of other full and in depth surveys by ground and aircraft. While there are many areas of pristeen wilderness untouched by modern man, at some point they've been traversed by someone seeking something.

Hermits, recluses, mentally deranged loners living off grid, yeppers; we've got plenty of those, but "tribes" of native aboriginals uncontacted to date; no way Jose!

Our northern latitudes were the stuff of exploration sagas and ushered in the era of bush planes to a greater extent than anywhere else on earth. As soon as float planes were invented, picture a country with more lakes than the rest of the world combined having a totally inaccessible area remaining. Prospectors were landed into lakes with nothing more than a few weeks of supplies and a canoe strapped to the struts to then traipse off into the wilderness to hunt, trap, stake claims and also to perform survey duties.

With all of that going on for over two hundred years, it's inconceivable any "tribes" remain undiscovered in the Canadian wilderness.

You must of missed the documentary I saw last year.

A tribe was found in the north east part of the Yukon, One, who they called the old curmudgeon, was taken to the big smoke to showcase some of their musical traditions.

Here is is, san furs.

Hey, I know that guy. He's my wife's cousin thrice removed. You should see him lead the conga line at family reunions. We always get as far as the Brownie table before he poops out.

Is it possible there are "uncontacted" Native American tribes living in the Canadian sub-arctic?

There aren't any Native Americans in Canada, but there are First Nations and Inuit. Native Americans are in USA. All of them have been contacted.

But in answer to the original question..... Yes. There's an uncontacted tribe. We call the uncontacted tribe the Sasquatch Tribe and there is evidence that they are everywhere in the deepest wildernesses throughout all of North America.
