Qeqertalik (Greenlandic pronunciation: [qeqeʁtalik], English: The One with Islands, Danish: Den Ene med Øerne) is a new municipality of Greenland created in 2018 from four southern regions of the former Qaasuitsup Municipality.
Qeqertalik Municipality is flanked in the south by the Qeqqata municipality and in the northeast by Avannaata. Over the ice cap, it is bordered in the east by the Sermersooq municipality, however this border runs north–south (45° West meridian) through the center of the Greenland ice sheet (Greenlandic: Sermersuaq), and as such is free of traffic.
Qeqertalik's municipal council consists of 15 members, elected every four years.
