Here are 18 Spectacular Pictures of Nunavut.

On April 1,2017, Canada’s Great White North celebrated a milestone. The day marked the 18th anniversary of Nunavut becoming Canada’s newest Territory. Before April 1, 1999, the region was considered part of the Northwest Territories. But now the territory is about one-fifth of Canada’s landmass and stretches all the way to the North Pole. It’s also the largest and least populated region of Canada.

Nunavut is an Inuktitut word and means ‘our land’ and not every Canadian will get the chance to head north to discover this unique, picturesque landscape. To celebrate Nunavut’s 18 years of being a Canadian Territory, here are 18 amazing pictures of this cold region that will warm your heart.
