Baker Lake (pop. 2,069) is the geographic centre of Canada, and Nunavut’s only inland community. Situated on the shore of Baker Lake near the mouth of the Thelon and Kazan Rivers, Baker is surrounded by rolling hills. A famous art community, Baker is now the gateway to the Meadowbank Gold Mine, a source of employment. The mine is connected to the community by the longest road in Nunavut.
