The territory of Nunavut is Canada’s largest in terms of land mass; it stretches over northern Canada and is about 1/5 the size of Canada overall, but is the smallest in terms of population. Nunavut's population is 31,152, which makes it one of the most scarcely populated areas in the whole world.

After Nunavut was created, it made the “four corners” in Canada, comprised of Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Although Nunavut just recently became an independent territory, there is evidence that life had been supported in that region for over 4000 years.

Nunavut is one of the few territories or provinces where English or French is not the main language. In fact a rare language, Inuktitut is the territory’s main language, which is spoken by the Inuks. The Inuk people have been inhibiting this region for many thousands of years.

Nunavut has a primitive pristine beauty. Unlike other nearby territories with similar climates, Nunavut does not have a large tourist season, but if you like wilderness camping and unique experiences it may be the place for you to explore.
