Resolute or Resolute Bay (Inuktitut: Qausuittuq ??????? literally "place with no dawn") is an Inuit hamlet on Cornwallis Island in Nunavut, Canada. It is situated at the northern end of Resolute Bay and the Northwest Passage and is part of the Qikiqtaaluk Region.
Resolute is one of Canada's northernmost communities and is second only to Grise Fiord on Ellesmere Island (Alert and Eureka are more northerly but are not considered towns – just military outposts and weather stations). It is also one of the coldest inhabited places in the world, with an average yearly temperature of ?15.7 °C (3.7 °F). As of the 2016 census the population was 198, a decrease of 7.5% from the 2011 census. Like in most other northern communities, the roads and most of the terrain are all gravel.
