Kepulauan Arktik, juga dikenal sebagai Kepulauan Arktik Kanada, adalah sekelompok pulau yang berada di utara daratan utama benua Kanada kecuali Greenland (teritorial otonomi Denmark). Terletak di ujung utara Amerika Utara dan memiliki luas sekitar 1424500 km2 (550000 sq mi), kepulauan tersebut terdiri dari 36.563 pulau di Laut Arktik yang meliputi sebagian besar teritorial Kanada Utara – sebagian besar Nunavut dan sebagian kecil Northwest Territories.[2] Kepulauan Arktik Kanada menunjukkan beberapa dampak pemanasan global,[3][4] dengan beberapa komputer memperkirakan pencairan disana akan membuat permukaan laut meningkat sampai 3,5 cm (1,4 in) pada 2100.[5]
