About Resolute Bay
Alternate Name: Qausuittuq
Local Meaning: Seagull Nesting Place


Resolute Bay is located on the south coast of Cornwallis Island in the Queen Elizabeth Islands. Resolute was named after the H.M.S. Resolute, one of the ships in the ill-fated Franklin search expedition of 1845. Cornwallis Island was one of the last known places circled by Franklin before his expedition sailed southward and disappeared forever. Today you can travel to Beechey Island, the last resting place for some of the members of the Franklin Expedition.

Resolute outfitters offer a variety of opportunities for unique arctic adventures. You can try a five-day igloo camping journey over the frozen ice to the the community of Grise Fiord. If the history intrigues you, try snowmobiling expeditions onto the frozen sea ice of the famous Northwest Passage. Dogteam trips and polar ice cap tours are also available.

Resolute Bay is an excellent location for marine wildlife watching. Pods of beluga and narwhal can be seen from Resolute's beach as they head to their summer feeding grounds. Ellesmere National Park Reserve and Polar Bear Pass National Wildlife Area are both easily accessed from Resolute Bay.

Resolute Bay is also the stepping stone and base camp headquarters for many North Pole expeditions. Many scientific research studies are also conducted from this community at the Polar Continental Shelf Project.
