About the map

Nunavut Location Map

This Nunavut map displays populated places, lakes, and rivers. For example, it displays Iqaluit which is the capital and largest city in Nunavut. It also includes satellite imagery and a hillshade relief map of Nunavut to display the topography. Nunavut borders the Northwest Territories to the west, Manitoba to the south, and the Hudson Bay/Northwestern Passage to the east.

Nunavut is the newest territory in Canada being established in 1999. It’s the largest Canadian territory (over 2 million sq. km) occupying most of the Canadian Arctic. The population is sparsely scattered throughout the territory with Iqaluit (Frobisher Bay), Rankin Inlet, and Arviat as the most populous.

It’s home to the world’s northernmost permanently inhabited place, Alert. The territory is known for its Aurora Borealis, polar bears, and natural resources. The climate is polar in the higher latitudes with winter temperatures around -30°C. If you go as far north as Grise Fiord, you can experience 24 hours of darkness in December.
