There is a reason why Nunavut has captured the world’s imagination.
We are the world’s largest land claim settlement, and our settlement area contains some of the only remaining untouched land on the planet. Our public government is consensus-style (without affiliation to any political party) and much of the work in the Legislative Assembly is conducted in the Inuit language.
Our territory has the country’s youngest population, and our vibrant youth continue to find new ways to weave our unique ancient culture with modern technology and ideas. Nunavut is home to world renowned artists, who are making international headlines in visual and performing arts, music and film.
The world is turning to Nunavut as one of the leading commentators on issues that we are experiencing first-hand, such as climate change and Arctic sovereignty. Our economy is growing stronger every day as we become recognized by global businesses for our vast renewable and non-renewable resources. As well as becoming a top destination for investors, we are developing businesses at the local level, and continuing our traditional hunting practices for sustenance.
Our government’s mandate, Tamapta/ᑕᒪᑦᑕ: Building our future together, has a strong vision which is seizing the unique opportunities of our territory while honouring our past.
We believe in Nunavut and its vibrant communities. Our strength is in our history and the future in is our hands.
