Location of Ennadai

Ennadai is a former populated place in Kivalliq Region, Nunavut, Canada. Located on a peninsula that juts into northeastern Ennadai Lake it faces an unnamed island. It is 250 mi (400 km) northwest of Churchill, Manitoba and 650 mi (1,050 km) west of Arviat.[1] Ennadai and the surrounding area has been the traditional home of Ihalmiut, a Caribou Inuit band.

The Ennadai Lake Meteorological Aeronautical Presentation System, a former weather station at this locale, consisted of four buildings.[1] The Royal Canadian Corps of Signals operated a base, Ennadai Lake Radio Station, (VEJ) at Ennadai from the summer of 1949 until 18 September 1954 when it was turned over to the Department of Transportation[2] An INCO Exploration Camp existed at Ennadai at about the same time.
