The Kazan River (Inuit name Harvaqtuuq, meaning "white partridge"), is a Canadian Heritage River located in Nunavut, Canada. The river rises in northern Saskatchewan and flows north for about 1,000 km (620 mi) before emptying into Baker Lake (64°09 00 N 95°30 00 W) and becoming part of the Thelon River. Along its course the river flows through several lakes, including Ennadai Lake and Yathkyed Lake, over the Kazan Falls (25 m (82 ft)), down a red sandstone gorge and through both boreal forest and tundra. It is the last section of the river, below Ennadai Lake, that is above the timber line and is designated a Canadian Heritage River.
