In this gallery, you will find a sample of the images we brought back from two stays in Nunavut, the largest and the most recent Canadian territory which occupies a territory as large as Western Europe. Created on April 1, 1999, Nunavut is an Inuktitut term which means “Our land”.

  • On May 30, 2013 the Mary Our Mother church hosted the episcopal ordination ceremony of Most Reverend Anthony Wieslaw Krotki, O.M.I. who became the 6th bishop for the Churchill-Hudson Bay diocese.

  • Artcirq is an initiative that is offering Igloolik's youth the possibility of expressing itself through the art of circus. This social circus has allowed several young Inuit to open their horizons and travel throughout Canada,  Europe, Africa and South America.

  • Located above the 74th parallel north directly on the Northwest Passage (i.e. close to 800 km north of the Arctic Circle),  Somerset island is Canada's 12th largest island. Every summer hundreds if not thousands of belugas congregate in the Cunningham Inlet estuary at the mouth of the Cunningham River. Here they find shallow and warmer waters.

  • An Inuit hamlet of about 230 people, Resolute is located on the southern shore of Cornwallis Island right on the Northwest Passage. Located above the 74th parallel, it is the second northernmost community in Canada (the northernmost being Grise Fjord, on Ellesmere Island). Its Inuit name is Qausuittuq meaning "where there is no dawn".

  • Located about one kilometre from the centre of Iqaluit, Nunavut's capital, the Sylvia Grinnell territorial park is the territory's oldest and most widely visited territorial park. It offers hiking trails, picnic areas, camping sites and arctic char fishing.
