The Cape Hope Islands are an uninhabited Canadian arctic islands group located within the midsection of James Bay in Nunavut, Canada. They are situated south of Vieux-Comptoir (Old Factory).[1]

History

The Inuit who lived on the Cape Hope Islands in the 1930s were transferred by the government to Great Whale River in 1960.[2] They now live in Kuujjuarapik, Quebec, and there is no longer a permanent settlement on the Cape Hope Islands.
