Cirque Mountain is a mountain located 11 km (7 mi) northeast of Mount Caubvick, Labrador, Canada. It is the third highest mountain in Labrador, after Caubvick (1,652 m) and Torngarsoak Mountain (1,595 m), and lies in the Selamiut Range, which is a subrange of the Torngat Mountains. Before 1971, it was believed that Cirque Mountain was the highest peak, in Canada, east of the Rocky Mountains and south of Baffin Island.
