Hall Beach is located on the shore of Foxe Basin on the Melville Peninsula. It is only 69 km from Igloolik, another Nunavut community. Hall Beach was built in the 1950’s when a Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line site was built in the area in 1957 to help monitor Canadian air space in the Far North. Although the DEW Line is no longer in use, there is a new system in place, a more technologically advanced North Warning System, within the community.
Hall Beach is considered one of the more traditional communities in Nunavut. Its Inuit name is Sanirajak or “one that is along the coast”. Hall Beach is host to many fascinating animals such as walruses, seals, and waterfowl. Fishermen love the area for its abundance of arctic char.
