Edinburgh Island is located within Coronation Gulf, south of Victoria Island, in the Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut, Canada. Between Coronation Gulf and the Canadian mainland, the Gulf is 55 km wide at this point. The island is 15 km by 9 km, rocky and barren, with highest point about 154 m above sea level. Coronation Gulf is part of the southern route of the Northwest Passage, but as Arctic ice retreats annually the northern route is a more direct for Arctic crossings.

Edinburgh Island was one of the sites for the Distant Early Warning Line, a system of radar stations set up to detect Russian bombers during the Cold War. It is currently the site of one of 15 radar stations constituting the North Warning System of the USA and Canada, for the air defence of North America. The station is situated one kilometre inland along a track from the beach on the centre of the south coast

Coronation Gulf was named by Sir John Franklin in 1821, in honour of the coronation of King George IV. In 2010, the Coronation Gulf was the site of maritime disaster, when the Clipper Adventurer ran aground on a rock shoal, about 96 km to the WSW of Edinburgh Island. The accident punctured the ship's ballast and fuel tanks, releasing pollution into the pristine waters, and stranded 128 passengers and 69 crew members until the CCGS Amundsen came to rescue them.
