Qikiqtarjuaq ("big island") (formerly, until 1 November 1998: "Broughton Island"), is a community located on the island of the same name in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut, Canada. The island is known for Arctic wildlife, whale watching, and as the northern access point for Auyuittuq National Park (see also Pangnirtung)
Qikiqtarjuaq used to host the annual "Suicide Prevention Walk". Local participants would walk a total distance of 60 km across the tundra from an old whaler's station called Kivitoo. Today the walk is much shorter than the original 2 and a half days, but it is still meant to promote hope among the community.
The community hosts a two week celebration over the Christmas and New Year period every year. Visitors are warmly welcomed and encouraged to join the festivities and games.
