Qikiqtarjuaq

Our Feature Community of the Month for December is Qikiqtarjuaq. This fascinating community is located just off the east coast of Baffin Island 97 km north of Arctic Circle, close to the northern boundary of the mountainous Auyuittuq National Park. Qikiqtarjuaq is also known as the ‘Iceberg and Diving Capital of Nunavut,’ rich with species of marine mammals, including bowhead whales, narwhals and orca whales.
