Perry River (Kuugjuaq) is a waterway in the Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut, Canada. It empties into Chester Bay on the southern Queen Maud Gulf.

At one time, Stephen Angulalik, and later Red Pedersen, ran a Hudson's Bay Company outpost called Perry River (67°48′N 102°17′W / 67.800°N 102.283°W / 67.800; -102.283 (Perry River post)) on a small island at the mouth of the river.
