Located on the southernmost peninsula of Baffin Island, Kimmirut is a traditional Inuit hamlet facing the Hudson Strait. Sat on the mouth of the river, it overlooks the waters of Glasgow Inlet. With picturesque beauty that will surely charm you, this hamlet is on the site of Hudson Bay’s first trading post, founded in 1911. Populated for centuries by Inuits, the region is home to over 400 inhabitants who maintain a traditional way of life. Adjoining Kimmirut is the Katannilik Territorial Park Reserve, (the Inuktitut word Katannilik means “the place of waterfalls”), whose remarkable natural and cultural heritage mean it has been part of the Canadian Heritage River System since 1992.
