Wild Edible Mushrooms of Nunavut

This guide provides a list of edible mushrooms in Nunavut, Canada including the Iqaluit area. Do not collect where prohibited.

This list only contains "safe" mushrooms - those that can be reliably identified and have no deadly-poisonous lookalikes. As a safety precaution, all mushrooms should be cooked and eaten in small quantities if not previously consumed.

Warning: do not attempt to identify a mushroom by matching the pictures alone; compare all the listed characteristics. Never experiment with a mushroom that you cannot positively identify. A poisonous mushroom can kill you.
