Edmund James Peck (April 15, 1850 – September 10, 1924), known in as Inuktitut as Uqammaq (one who talks well), was an Anglican missionary in Canada. He is most notable for his work in developing Inuktitut syllabics, derived from the Cree syllabary and for writing the first substantial English-Inuktitut dictionary.
In 1894 the whaling station on Blacklead Island was purchased by Mr. C. Noble and offered to Peck as an Anglican mission. Peck made several trips to England and southern Canada over the years but always returned to the mission, until he finally left in 1902.
