Victoria Strait, Canada

Victoria Strait is a strait in northern Canada that lies in Nunavut off the mainland in the Arctic Ocean. It is between Victoria Island to the west and King William Island to the east. From the north the strait links the M'Clintock Channel and the Larsen Sound with the Queen Maud Gulf to the south. The strait is about 100 mi (160 km) long and anywhere from 50 to 80 mi (80 to 130 km) wide.

Ships drawing up to 30 feet (9.1 m) have navigated the strait, but it is made very difficult by the ice. Most of the year the strait is covered with rough, heavy ice. Much of this is polar ice which has flowed down the McClintock Channel from the Viscount Melville Sound. Large-scale breakup of the ice in the strait begins by late July and continues in to late September when it begins to freeze again
