Where is Nunavut Post?
Nunavut Post is based in Iqaluit, a town of over 7,000 people at the end of Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island. Known as Frobisher Bay until January 1, 1987, Iqaluit developed around the Crystal 2 air force base built by the U.S. Strategic Air Command in 1942.
Iqaluit, chosen by the people of Nunavut in a plebiscite held December 11, 1995, is the capital of the new territory. It’s now the home of Nunavut’s new legislative assembly building, and the head offices of Nunavut’s eleven government departments.
By the end of 2000, the Nunavut’s Department of Community Government is expected to grant city status to Iqaluit.
Almost all of our Inuktitut copy is produced in syllabics, but occasionally, or upon request, we are able to produce material in Inuinnaqtun Roman orthography. We also publish material in French.

Nunavut is a massive, sparsely populated territory of northern Canada, forming most of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Its islands have expanses of tundra, craggy mountains and remote villages, accessible only by plane or boat. It’s known for its indigenous Inuit people’s artwork, carvings and handmade clothing. Inuit art is displayed at the Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum in the capital, Iqaluit, on Baffin Island.
Nunavut means “our land” in the native language Inuktitut.
