As with many First Nation Communities, Eabametoong is a dry (alcohol-free) community. There are an abundance of recreational activities in Fort Hope, such as hockey, biking, hiking, canoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and fishing/ice fishing, all of which are possibilities for the adventurous soul.
