Bernard Harbour (Inuit: Nulahugiuq)[1] is a bay on the mainland of Nunavut, Canada. It is situated on Dolphin and Union Strait, southwest of Sutton Island.

At one time, it was the site of a Hudson's Bay Company trading post. It is also a former Distant Early Warning Line (PIN-C) and current North Warning System site.[2]

The harbour is well sheltered and can accommodate ships of 20 feet draught.[3]

The butterfly, Colias johanseni, is found in the area.[4]
