Lady Franklin Island ("Kitigtung" in Inuktitut), is an uninhabited Baffin Island offshore isle located in the territory of Nunavut, Canadian Arctic Archipelago.
- The island of Lady Franklin lies in Davis Strait, 40 km (25 ml) from Hall Peninsula. Off its northwest shore there are at least 7 smaller, unnamed islands. The geology of the island is quite striking with vertical Archean rocks' cliffs, likely to be some of Canada's oldest stone.
- Lady Franklin Island was named by Charles Francis Hall, American Arctic explorer (1821-1871), as a tribute to the wife of the English Royal Navy officer and explorer of the Arctic, Sir John Franklin (1786-1847), Lady Franklin (1791-1875). Sir John Franklin died while trying to discover the Northwest Passage.
- Lady Franklin Island features an abundance of caribou (tuktoo), bears, seabirds, ducks, walrus and seals. With a bit of luck it's possible to see Atlantic Puffins and even the rare Sabine’s Gull.
