C-GOLJ at CYLCKimmirut (formerly Lake Harbour) was one of the earlier Hudson's Bay Company and RCMP posts in the south Baffin.  It has also become known for a sapphire find. It is the closest community airstrip to Iqaluit.  The strip is relatively short, with hills on 2 sides and village on the other two, making it a challenge. And that doesn't count the fun of the dip in the middle (see photos below).

Nearby Katannilik Park, with its This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Anglican Church, Kimmirut Kimmirut is one of the earliest settlements in the south Baffin area of Nunavut.  The Anglican Church has had a presence here since about 1909. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police established a post here in 1911. The community site was determined by these outside interests.

Today, Kimmirut is a small community of about 400 people.  Jobs in the community are few. There are a number of artists, and many people spend considerable time engaged in traditional hunting and gathering activities. For some great views of the community and the local weather, visit kimmirutweather.com.  They have a wonderful photo album.
