There are 25 organized communities in Nunavut, as well as two unorganized/seasonally-inhabited communities (Bathurst Inlet, and Umingmaktok).

Abandoned Communities

Nanisivik

The community of Nanisivik, located near Arctic Bay at the northern tip of Baffin Island, was established in 1975 by Strathcona Mineral Services to serve as the base for its lead-zinc mining operations. The community was abandoned with the closure of the Nanisivik mine in 2002.
