Whapmagoostui (“place of the beluga”) is the northernmost Cree community in Quebec, located at the mouth of the Great Whale River on the coast of Hudson Bay in Nunavik. The local population consists of about 900 Cree and 650 Inuit, who live in the neighbouring village of Kuujjuarapik. The community is only accessible by air (Kuujjuarapik Airport) and, in late summer, by boat. Whapmagoostui is about 250 kilometres north of the nearest Cree community, Chisasibi.
