Igoolik, also spelled Iglulik, is an Inuit hamlet located in the Foxe Basin, Qikiqtaaluk Region in northern Canada. It is located on Igloolik Island, near the Melville Peninsula, hence is often mistaken to be on the peninsula. It has a total area of 102.87 square kilometres and is situated at an elevation of 53 m (174 ft) above mean sea level. The name Igloolik was derived from iglu, meaning house. Iglulik means 'there is a house here', pertaining to the sod houses originally in the area, and not to snow igloos.
The major airport serving Nunavut is Iqaluit Airport, which has connections to Montréal, Ottawa, and to all the other Inuit hamlets in Nunavut.
