The three regions of Nunavut serve as census divisions, although Statistics Canada uses the names "Baffin Region" for the Qikiqtaaluk Region and "Keewatin Region" for the Kivalliq Region. Though the regions have no autonomous governments, Nunavut's territorial government services are highly decentralized on a regional basis.

Property Value
dbo:abstract
  • The three regions of Nunavut serve as census divisions, although Statistics Canada uses the names "Baffin Region" for the Qikiqtaaluk Region and "Keewatin Region" for the Kivalliq Region. Though the regions have no autonomous governments, Nunavut's territorial government services are highly decentralized on a regional basis. It is a misconception that Nunavut is made up of some of the former regions of the Northwest Territories, separated in their entirety. This is not the case; the dividing line did not follow region boundaries, although boundaries have been subsequently finessed so that three former NWT regions collectively constitute Nunavut. The regional divisions are distinct from the district system of dividing the Northwest Territories that dated to 1876 and was abolished when Nunavut was created, although for practical purposes had not been used since the 1980s. Nunavut encompasses the entirety of the District of Keewatin (which had differing boundaries from the Keewatin/Kivalliq regions), the majority of the District of Franklin and a small portion of the District of Mackenzie.
