Where in the world. Nunavut

Following on from my where in the world Canada. I think I discovered a few things, one I didn’t know all the Provinces and territories, in fact I only got 5 right. To help me remember, I am going to do an extra post on this on at least one place I got spectacularly wrong. Which is Nunavut, it is the largest one out of the 13. Pretty hard to miss, but I managed it. What do we know about this place. 10 facts about it

stolen from wikipedia
  1. It is the second least populated of Canada’s provinces and territories and is the newest one as well, as of 1993.
  2. It is not connected to Canada by road, and the population is mainly made up of Inuit people.
  3. It is home to the northest permanently inhabited place, called Alert.
  4. While French and English are spoken the main language is the Inuit languages Inuktitut and Inuinnaqtun
  5. You ever want to see a Narwhal, this is the best place to see them 75% of the Narwhal population call it home
  6. There are no trees (well almost)
  7. Taxis charge a flat rate of $7
  8. For an area of nearly 1 million square miles it only has 32 km of paved road
  9. You ever want to see a sunset at lunchtime, December 17th at 1.40pm, however June 20th Iqaluit gets 20.5 hours of sunlight
  10. Although not a fact Susan Aglukark comes from there and this is one of her songs

Lets hope I never miss out Nunavut again.

  1. Well now as a Canadian I will admit that I was unaware (and how shameful) that the territory of Nunavut had been carved off of the NW Territories in the ’90’s. Mind the last time that I recited all the provinces I could not remember New Brunswick (ooooops) In my defense I have been out of school for nigh on 30 years lol 🙂

    Very cool information. Like Jay-lyn, I would have lumped that whole northern section into the Northwest Territory and let the polar bears and moose decide how to run things. Getting there sounds tough with only 32 km of paved roads. Thanks for the data.
