Baker Lake (Inuktitut: ᖃᒪᓂᑦᑐᐊᕐᒃ[1], Inuinnaqtun: Qamanittuaq)[1] is a territorial electoral district (riding) for the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut, Canada. The riding consists of the community of Baker Lake. The current Member of the Legislative Assembly is Simeon Mikkungwak.

The Nunavut Electoral Boundaries Commission has recommended the district be renamed Qamani'tuaq, after the Inuktitut name of the community, for the next election, along with minor boundary changes. However, the name appears to have not been changed.[2]
