Cory Bay is an arm of the Foxe Basin in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut, Canada. It is located on northeastern Foxe Peninsula, in western Baffin Island. The closest community is Cape Dorset, situated 170 km (110 mi) to the south,[1] while Nuwata, a former settlement, is situated to the west.

The Great Plain of the Koukdjuak stetches from Cory Bay to Hantzsch Bay, and then inland.[2]
