Overall rating: 7

Nunavut, Canada has an area of 2,093,190 sq km and a population of about 29,000. Its capital is Iqaluit.

Nunavut shares its borders with Manitoba, Northwest Territories, and Newfoundland and Labrador and has an aquatic border with Ontario and Quebec. Nunavut’s topography is dominated by the Canadian Shield (rocky region) and the Arctic tundra.

Nunavut came into existence as a territory only in 1999, prior to which it was part of Northwest Territories. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Inuit people, it was later occupied by the British.

Rankin Inlet 9
The best period to go to Rankin Inlet would be in Spring. My reason is that there would be lots of on the land trips to go on, see exciting things, also to fish in the Inuit's traditional way. You can also go hunting for seals on the flow edge and the geese star to come over. There also lots of community things going on like the annual Pakallak Tyme events going on, see the community get together. Spring is the best time to go, although, most blizzards come at the time of the season from Winter to Summer. But hey! Lots of snow :D Delighted to share.

Iqaluit 5
Go during the summer when its warm, but when the musquitos are gone. Iqaluit is a growing city with about 7500 people. The town is overcrowded and there are lots of homeless and their jail is overcrowding as there are too many criminals, the groceries are expensive and you are really lonely when you live there.
