Hall Beach


Approximately 290 km from Mary River

Hall Beach is the oldest known permanently inhabited community north of the Arctic Circle. For thousands of years large herds of ivory tusked walruses have made their annual arrival to Hall Beach. Local hunters boast about the predominant wildlife where many species can be found that won’t be seen in many other parts of Arctic world.

Many archeological sites of the modern day Inuit’s ancestors are still being discovered in the Hall Beach area.

Meet Hall Beach’s Baffinland Community Liaison Officer:

Joelie Kaernerk

Joelie1Joelie began working with Baffinland on December 9, 2013. He is primarily responsible for collecting and forwarding resumes from Hall Beach residents to the Baffinland recruiters. He also informs his community about other opportunities that exist within Baffinland. Joelie’s first role with the company was as a facilitator for the company’s Work Ready Program, before which he was a dedicated traditional hunter.

Joelie’s favourite aspect of his role is assisting the new Baffinland hires in signing their contracts and helping the Baffinland recruiters find potential candidates as well as assisting the potential candidates in doing what they can to get hired. He finds the most challenging part of his role is accurately describing an eligible candidate to recruiters at the head office who are not available to meet the candidate in person. Joelie’s other favourite part of his role is interacting with his co-workers in the surrounding communities.
