Kam Lake[1][2] is a territorial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories, Canada.

It is one of seven districts that represent Yellowknife[3] and the current Member of the Legislative Assembly is Dave Ramsay.[4]

A larger-than-usual property tax increase in 2014[5] saw the area re-zoned by the City of Yellowknife and some of the restrictions around residential building in the industrial area modified.[6]
