Nunavut is a territory in Canada. It was founded in 1999 when many Inuit living in the Northwest Territories wanted to have an independent province and government. Its capital is named Iqaluit. It is in the north of Canada, and has a particularly cold climate for much of the year. It has many native people (mainly Inuit).
A symbol of the territory is the Eskimo Dog. Even today, some people still use these dogs.
