About the Hamlet of Arctic Bay
The Arctic Bay area has been occupied for nearly 5000 years by Inuit nomads migrating from the west. Today, Arctic Bay is a lively community with a population of over 823 located in the northern part of the Borden Peninsula on Baffin Island, in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut.
The Inuktitut name for Arctic Bay is Ikpiarjuk which means “the pocket”. This name describes the high hills that surround the almost landlocked bay. To the southeast, the flat-topped King George V Mountain dominates the landscape. The community is served by annual supply sealift, and by The Arctic Bay Airport.
