Largest Island in Canada, Baffin Island

Type:canadian record

Encompassing approximately 476,070 square kilometres, Baffin Island ranks as the fifth-largest island in the world and it features one of the Earth’s harshest climates. The island’s unforgiving arctic tundra is home to only about 11,000 people, but it’s far from being unpopulated: polar bears, caribou, ringed seals, arctic foxes and other resilient beasties make it one of the richest wildlife regions in the country.
