We paddled the Teslin River to Carmacks and used Canoe People out of Whitehorse for shuttling us and our canoes. You might want to connect with them to see what they have to offer. We can highly recommend them.
Here is my TR:
Loved it up there, definitely want to go back.

I was on that trip with Blucruisin, heed my warnings - A Paddle in the Terror-tories

It's a beautiful paddle and I'd love to head north and do the paddle all the way through to Dawson City!

I don't like big rivers. The corners are an hour apart. The view is very much the same.

Loop routes:

Canoe Saskatchewan

has a raft of documented routes, mostly in the Churchill river system and tributaries. Some are explicit loops. Others can be combined into loops. Most are covered by 3-5 topo maps.

The churchill is the largest river in the area. I find it mroe interesting to use the smaller rivers -- Like the Nemie, Scimitar, Brabent, Watheman, Pink, Mudjatik.

The loop routes are the most traveled, but even on those it was rare to meet more than 2-3 groups per week. If you can arrange a shuttle you can do a longer trip into true wilderness.

On non-described routes, such as the Mirror, Virgin, McFarlane, I've not even seen a float plane for 2 weeks at a time

Anyone have any experience of the Turner Lake Chain near Nimpo Lake? Thoughts?

DO IT!!!

To be fair, I don't have practical experience doing a multi-day canoe trip there. We hiked in to the lake and then did a day-trip using a canoe so we didn't need to deal with a portage and we didn't see the other lake. Beautiful little corner of the world.
