Church of The Redeemer - Clyde River, Nunavut

Kangiqtugaapik, the Inuktitut name for Clyde River, means "nice little inlet". For most Clyde River families, hunting and camping in spring and summer remain major activities. Skin clothing is still made and worn, and many people depend on the animals harvested throughout the year for food. In early June when school finishes, families leave the community en masse and travel by snowmobile and qamutiit over cracks in the sea ice to traditional campsites on the shores of fiords. Many of these locations are ancient and three or more styles of dwellings and landmarks, dating back at least 2000 years can be seen. Since the decline of the sealskin and fur markets, government jobs and handicrafts have become the most important sources of income. However, subsistence hunting holds a special place in people's lives. Tourism is seen as a way to show others the vibrancy of traditional culture and is key to the economic life of the community.

The Anglican mission was established in Clyde River in 1961. A church was built in 1968 (this is now used as the church hall) and a new church was constructed in 1983. A new rectory was built in 1991. Deacon Jacobie Iqalukjuaq is non-stipendiary deacon in charge of the parish in Clyde River.
