Approximately 150 km from Mary River
Pond Inlet is a picturesque hamlet located at the Northern tip of Baffin Island, close to the floe edge and along the early phase revenue shipping route based out of Milne Port.
Many archaeological sites can be found around Pond Inlet that give evidence to the presence of the modern day Inuit’s ancestors from 1,000 years ago.
Aside from the stunning scenery that surrounds the region, Pond Inlet is also a marine wildlife mecca, where Narwhals, along with other species, can be spotted in heavy dominance. Baffinland’s ongoing narwhal study takes place at Bruce Head, a nearby peninsula to Pond Inlet.

Meet Pond Inlet’s Baffinland Community Liaison Officer:
When Baffinland was running its pilot Work Ready Program, Joe was hired to assist in preparing prospective employees for their new roles within the company. Joe’s favourite part of his role is being the go-to person for those in his community who are seeking employment at the mine site.
Joe is a firm believer that you need to experience the beauty of Pond Inlet to truly appreciate its beauty. “There are icebergs, and mountains all around, and with Bylot Island right across from Pond Inlet, you can often spot geese and narwhals and other sea mammals. Come and see it to experience it all.”
