LSNL RECOGNIZES NUNATSIAVUT DAY
We would like to extend our best wishes to the people of Nunatsiavut who are celebrating the 17th anniversary of Nunatsiavut Day on December 1st.
The Canadian Inuit territory of Nunatsiavut, which means “Our Beautiful Land” in Inuktitut, was established within the boundaries of Newfoundland and Labrador. The area includes territory in Labrador extending to the Quebec border. In 2002, the Labrador Inuit Association submitted a proposal for limited autonomy to the provincial government. The constitution was ratified on December 1, 2005, and Nunatsiavut became the first of the Inuit regions in Canada to achieve self-government.
We hope you join us in wishing residents of the region happy Nunatsiavut Day.
