Kazan River, 850 km long, rises near Kasba Lake in southern Nunavut near the Saskatchewan border. Flowing north it follows an irregular course through several lakes, draining a large part of the Barren Lands. It joins the Thelon River on the south shore of Baker Lake, across the lake from the Inuit hamlet of the same name. It is a popular wilderness canoe route. The name comes from a Chipewyan word for white swan. It was designated a Canadian Heritage River in 1990.
