The Wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror National Historic Site is Canada’s newest northern national historic site, and the first to be co-managed by Inuit and Parks Canada. It is divided into two component parts, one protecting each ship wreck. Co-managed by Parks Canada and Inuit, both parties are working together to ensure the site is protected and presented for current and future generations.

The Nunavut community of Gjoa Haven, on King William Island, is the closest community to each wreck, 125 km away from each one.
