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 Eskimo Point.[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.
