Qikiqtarjuaq

Qikiqtarjuaq means the “Big Island”. Located on Broughton Island it had a population of 520 in 2012. The island is known for its Arctic wildlife and is the northern access point for the Auyuittuq National Park. The deep waters adjacent to the island have helped make the case for harbour development to support the Nunavut offshore fishery.
