N is for Nunavut

Canada's newest, largest and northernmost territory, Nunavut came into being on April 1st, 1999 when the North West Territories was split into two parts. Largest, but also the least populated. Way up at the northernmost tip of Ellesmere island is Alert, the northernmost continuously inhabited place on the planet.
