“Our Land”: Nunavut Becoming a Territory Celebrated in New Stamp Marking Canada 150

The Nunavut stamp is the seventh of 10 stamps being issued by Canada Post to celebrate Canada 150. The creation of Nunavut was the first major change to Canada’s map since Newfoundland and Labrador in 1949. The territory of Nunavut became official on April 1, 1999. The territory -now the largest province or territory in Canada- encompasses about one-fifth (1.9 Million sq. kilometres) of the country’s land mass and is home to fewer than 40,000 people, most of them Innuit.
The Nunavut stamp features an image of Leah Ejanguiaq Kines, photographed by her spouse Clare Kines, both of who reside in Arctic Bay, Nunavut.
