The bilingual map of Northern Canada illustrates the Relocation Route of the Inuit Relocates through Nunavik and Nunavut. There is a legend that color codes each of the four regions, Inuvialuit, Nunavut, Nunatsiavut, and Nunavik.

  • Inuvialuit region is situated in the north-western part of Canada within the Northwest Territories
  • Nunavut neighbours the Inuvialuit region to the right and is the largest Inuit region
  • Nunavik is in the northern part of Quebec below eastern Nunavut
