The Strathcona Islands[1] are uninhabited Canadian arctic islands located in Hudson Strait, Nunavut, Canada. They are a Baffin Island offshore island group in Qikiqtaaluk Region lying from 2 mi (3.2 km) to 9 mi (14 km) west of Cape Colmer. The group consists of a large island that rises in a series of rocky ridges to 183 m (600 ft); its south side is low and irregular. There are also several small, rocky islands.[2]

Kimmirut, an Inuit hamlet, is to the east.
