Canada's Map is changing

At 12:01 on April 1st 1999, after an interfaith church service, a huge fireworks display marked the official formation of Nunavut-Canada's 3rd Territory. For the first time since Newfoundland and Labrador joined confederation in 1949, the map of Canada has been redrawn. Stretching north
of the 60th parallel in a vast pie-shaped wedge from the manitoba border to the tip of Ellesmere Island-almost to the geographic North Pole-and including Islands in Ungava Bay, Hudson Bay and James bay, Nunavut is almost one quarter the size of Canada.

Some interesting facts about the territory.
