    Nunavut -- "our land" in the Inuktitut language -- has been home to Inuit for millennia yet is less than 10 years old as a territory. Embracing both traditional knowledge and values and the new opportunities presented by technologies like the Internet, the Government of Nunavut now provides a wide range of services tailored to the unique needs of approximately 30,000 residents.

    Inuit have a rich cultural experience to share. If you come north, you are sure to be moved. You will learn something of their ancient traditions, their harvesting activities, and performing arts. You may choose to purchase a carving, a print or weaving to enrich your home or office.

    Nunavut is an extraordinarily beautiful place. Breathtaking vistas are everywhere.

    Outdoor recreational opportunities are extensive. They include kayaking, canoeing, hiking, fishing and world-class climbing in the summer. Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and trips to the floe-edge can be enjoyed in the spring and winter months.

    Come north and experience the adventure.
