Nunavut Day

July 9 is Nunavut Day (Inuktiut:: ᓄᓇᕗᑦ ᐅᓪᓗᖓ) in the Canadian Province of Nunavut, where it is a public holiday. On July 9, 1993, the Parliament of Canada passed the Nunavut Act, establishing the territory of Nunavut.

Nunavut became a legally distinct territory from the Northwest Territories on April 1, 1999. However, it was felt that the 1993 Nunavut Land Claims Agreement had greater significance to the people of Nunavut, so the holiday is celebrated on July 9.
