The name "Arviat" comes from arviq, the Inuktitut name for bowhead whale. The community is located on the western shore of Hudson Bay, north of Churchill, Manitoba. Arviat's lands and waters are rich in wildlife. The McConnell River Migratory Bird Sanctuary, south of town, is a great place to observe thousands of nesting waterfowl. In the fall, beluga whales are frequently seen in the bays around town and caribou are often spotted near the community.
