Igloolik is located on a small island in Foxe Basin, just off Melville Peninsula on the mainland of Nunavut.

Although Igloolik is part of the Qikiqtani or Baffin region, there exists a mix of Inuit cultural traditions from each of the three regions.

Igloolik is a community that balances modern living with a traditional way of life. This balance is illustrated by Isuma Production’s Atanarjuat, the award winning movie based on traditional legend. (~Government of Nunavut)
