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
- It is the second least populated of Canada’s provinces and territories and is the newest one as well, as of 1993.
- It is not connected to Canada by road, and the population is mainly made up of Inuit people.
- It is home to the northest permanently inhabited place, called Alert.
- While French and English are spoken the main language is the Inuit languages Inuktitut and Inuinnaqtun
- You ever want to see a Narwhal, this is the best place to see them 75% of the Narwhal population call it home
- There are no trees (well almost)
- Taxis charge a flat rate of $7
- For an area of nearly 1 million square miles it only has 32 km of paved road
- You ever want to see a sunset at lunchtime, December 17th at 1.40pm, however June 20th Iqaluit gets 20.5 hours of sunlight
- Although not a fact Susan Aglukark comes from there and this is one of her songs
Lets hope I never miss out Nunavut again.
