Nunavut is the largest and newest federal territory in Canada. It means 'Our Land' in the language of the Inuit peoples for whom the land division was made. It was formed from land that formerly made up part of the Northwest Territories. The formation took place on April 1, 1999 in accordance w…ith the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Act . Both acts were an attempt by the Canadian government to remedy a previously existing situation. During 1953-1955, people such as the Inuit were relocated from the High Arctic, due to the strategic location of this share of Canadian lands and waters during the Cold War . With the end of the Cold War four decades later, the government sought to recompense and encourage relocation of those people and their descendants, back to the High Arctic areas where their cultures had developed.
