Ukkusiksalik National Park

Contact the Parks Canada office in Naujaat for assistance with your route directions. For all areas of the park, you will need to purchase topographic maps and marine charts prior to arrival. Maps that you receive are up-to-date only to the year indicated on the map. Care must be taken when using topographic maps to prevent unnecessary accidents.

Route planning is easiest with 1:250,000 maps but you should navigate with the appropriate 1:50,000 maps. The Wager Bay Map, 56-G and Douglas Harbour Map, 56-H cover the area around Sila Lodge whereas 56-I, 56-J, 56-F, 56-K and 46-E cover the rest of the park. The nautical charts for the area include: 5440 Wager Bay; 5533 Roes Welcome Sound; and 7405 Repulse Bay and Approaches.

Navigation should be done with an experienced and licensed outfitter with the appropriate 1:50,000 maps and charts. Maps are available through the Canada Map Office, while nautical charts are available through the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. The map office does not sell maps but can provide a list of map distributors and further information about maps.
