The Ellice River (Inuktitut: Kuunnuaq) is a waterway in the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut, Canada. It rises close to the Back River between Beechey Lake and Pelly Lake, and flows northward into the Queen Maud Gulf. Its mouth opens between Campbell Bay and Gernon Bay. The land between the river and Sherman Inlet is generally flat and marshy. Muskox and barren-ground caribou frequent the area.
The river is named in honour of Edward Ellice, Jr..
