From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Nunavut is a territory in Canada. It is the newest, largest, and northernmost territory of Canada. It was founded in 1999 when many Inuit living in the Northwest Territories wanted to have an independent province and government.
Present-day Nunavut was initially administered as a part of the Northwest Territories, although by the end of 1912, the territory only administered the lands north of the 60th parallel north and east of Yukon. During the late-20th century, the government of Canada entered into land claim negotiations with the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami.
