Description: 
Located on the south coast of Victoria Island, Cambridge Bay is a common stop for research and passenger vessels sailing the Northwest Passage. Named for Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, its Inuinnaqtun name is Iqaluktuttiaq meaning "good fishing place". Cambridge Bay is the administrative and transportation hub of the Kitikmeot. Headquarters of the Kitikmeot Inuit Association, Nunavut Impact Review Board and Nunavut Planning Commission, along with the Department of Lands and Resources of Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., are located in Cambridge Bay. Known as a traditional hunting and fishing ground, Cambridge Bay became an outpost for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Hudson’s Bay Company in the 1920’s. It is also the final resting place of the Baymaud, a ship commissioned by noted Arctic explorer and first man to successfully navigate the Northwest Passage, Roald Amundsen. A DEW Line site was established in 1955 and, unlike the majority of sites which have been abandoned or automated, it is still in manned operation as CAM-MAIN, part of the North Warning System.
