Rankin Inlet, Nunavut on the western shores of Hudson Bay, is Nunavut's second largest community. Located at the head of Rankin Inlet, about 20km from Hudson Bay, the community of Rankin Inlet developed as a result of nickel mining activity in the area. The Thule people, who built stone weirs to channel Arctic char into shallow water where they could be speared, once used the mouth of the nearby Meliadine River. After the Government of the Northwest Territories moved its regional headquarters to Rankin Inlet, the community began to flourish.
