Nunavut isn't a province, it's a territory, like Yukon and the Northwest Territories. That means that it is delegated authority by the federal government, rather than having i…ts authority granted by the constitution, like provinces do. Nunavut is unique in that it has a majority Inuit population. Both Nunavut and the Northwest Territories use consensus government, which means all members of the legislative assembly sit as independents rather than as members of a party as is common in Yukon and the provinces.
Manitoba is directly south of Nunavut. Northwest Territories is aterritory that is to the west of Nunavut but is south of some areasof Nunavut.
