Arctic Bay

Our Featured Community of the Month for September is Arctic Bay in Nunavut. This vibrant traditional community is located on the north shore of Adams Sound, off Admiralty Inlet, northern Baffin Island. A habitat for many unique bird species, narwhals and bowhead whales, the Inuit call this beautiful sheltered community Ikpiarjuk, translated as “pocket.” For more information, visit the Arctic Bay Atlas.
