A Brief Introduction to Nunavut
Officially founded as a Territory in 1999, Nunavut is both the newest and the largest territory of Canada in accordance with the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. It is comprised of both lands and waters in Northern Canada. Nunavut shares land borders with Manitoba and North West Territories on its southwest side, while it is surrounded by water on the other three sides.
Nunavut is rich in natural resources, such as natural gas, iron, nickel, and diamonds. The large portion of undeveloped land has been attracting a lot of public and private companies over the last years. Besides, the breathtaking landscape and fauna species are attracting more and more tourists coming from all over the world to visit Nunavut.
Nunavut is divided into three regions; Qikiqtani, Kivalliq and Kitikmeot. The interests of each region are represented, in a fair and democratic way, by regional Inuit associations.
