Rankin Inlet's Inuktitut name is 'Kangiqtiniq' or 'Kangiqliniq' which means 'deep inlet.' Rankin Inlet is a predominantly Inuit community. Indigenous peoples have lived in this area for almost 2000 years.

Rankin Inlet is a transportation and shipping hub for the Kivalliq region, an area on the West coast of Hudson Bay. Kivalliq is one of the three regions of Nunavut, the most recently created political jurisdiction in Canada. Rankin Inlet is a major governmental centre in Nunavut, and has a population of over 2,000.

The town was named by owners of the Rankin Inlet Mine, which produced nickel and copper ore there between 1957 and 1962. The mine was the first employer of Inuit miners in Canada.
