The Kaleet River effectively starts north of Lower Macdougall Lake in the Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut, Canada just east of Joe Lake, . It is a small, silty river constituting the eastern boundary of the Queen Maud Gulf Bird Sanctuary. It is a main feeder river to Sherman Basin, , at its final outlet. There is evidence of earlier Inuit presence in the form of inuksuit. There is also evidence of a more modern presence in the form of cairns. There is at least one cabin on the north side of the Kaleet, as it widens entering Sherman Basin.
