Baillie Island (Inuit: Utkraluk) is located off the north coast of Cape Bathurst in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The island formed part of the area used by the Avvaqmiut who are a branch of the Mackenzie Inuit.
The first Euroepan to discover the island was John Richardson in 1826, who also named it. It was again visited by Richardson and John Rae, while searching the Northwest Passage for Franklin's lost expedition. In 1915, the Hudson's Bay Company established a trading post on the island. While the post was being set up, it was visited by competing trader Christian Theodore Pedersen. By the 1920s, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had established a detachment on the island. It was at Baillie Island, in 1928, after returning from Cambridge Bay that Inspector Kemp, the Commanding Officer for the Western Arctic, appointed Henry Larsen captain of the St. Roch.
