Formed in 1999 when the land was officially separated from the Northwest Territories, the territory of Nunavut is the second largest sub-divided community in North America. The economy is driven by fishing, tourism and mining, the latter of which is responsible for Nunavut being seen as a viable choice for people relocating from out-of-province.
A Little About Nunavat
Although Nunavut is the largest body of land in Canada, it is still the least populous among the provinces and territories with the most recent total population reported as 37,026. Despite having a lower population than the 100 largest cities in the country, the amount of people choosing to live in Nunavut continues to grow and there are 11 communities with over 1,000 residents, with almost all of them experiencing growth between each census. Only 15% of residents are non-aboriginal, with over 80% identifying as Inuit.
Entertainment & Attractions
The aboriginal culture is alive and well in Nunavut and is part of what drives tourism to the area. The handmade arts and crafts, the musical styling of First Nations people and the circus artistry of Artcirq are all part of what makes Nunavut unique and helps it to stand apart from the other provinces and territories in the country. Artcirq is based out of Nunavut but travels around the world to bring the Inuit culture to people who may never otherwise have the change to be exposed to it. Nunavut may not be the most populous place in Canada, but it is easily the most unique. Real estate opportunities continue to open up as the amount of people relocating to the territory for work increases and the mining industry grows. For anybody who has been debating moving to Nunavut, now may just be the perfect time to look for available property.
