Nunavut

Nunavut officially separated from the Northwest Territories in April of 1999, making it the newest and largest of the Canadian territories. It is largely remote and sparsely populated making post-secondary and advanced training in the region uniquely challenging. Currently, there are not universities in Nunavut and only one college, the Nunavut Arctic College, which offers a number of degrees in conjunction with Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Nunavut Arctic College has multiple campuses with programs only offered at specific locations. There are a limited number of seats available to international and out of province Canadians. Higher education in Nunavut is of the upmost importance to the territories government. With more residents completing their K-12 education the government is working to bring more post-secondary higher education to help develop the economic and intellectual development of the territory.
