Nunavut 46¢

Canada created the new territory of Nunavut in April 1, 1999, the first geographical reorganization since Newfoundland entered the Confederation. The territory was created to respect the largest aboriginal land claim agreement (two million square kilometres – larger than Sk and AB combined) in Canadian history. To commemorative this historic occasion, Canada Post has issued a lively stamp.

“The deep horizon on the stamp suggests the vastness of this new territory, while the friendly faces of Inuit children represent the strong Inuit presence. The youth, dawn-like lightning, and spring-time setting also suggest a new beginning. Inukshuks appear in both the foreground and horizon of the illustration, to represent guidance, comfort and welcome. Nunavut means “our land” in the Inuit language of Inuktitut.”
