Did you know Nunavut is the newest territory in Canada? Formed on April 1, 1999, Nunavut is one fifth of Canada’s landmass. Nunavut’s formation is the first change to Canada’s map since Newfoundland became a province in 1949. Snowmobiles are the main method of transportation in Nunavut. Communities also depend on airplanes to transport food, supplies, people, and machinery. Since airplanes are the main method of transporting goods and people to and from Nunavut, almost every community has an airport.
