Nunavut means “our land” in the Inuktitut language. While it has been part of Canada for more than 100 years, it became a separate territory in 1999. For thousands of years, Inuit have lived in Nunavut and today they make up 85% of the population of just over 33,300 people living in 25 communities. Nunavut’s many natural resources are creating new opportunities for work in mining, economic development and technologies. While there are many services available in Nunavut, there are no services available in Nunavut specifically for immigrants. ( and wikipedia)
