The climate of Nunavut (Canada)
Nunavut is the youngest province in Canada and largely situated above the 60th degree of latitude. Mainly Inuit live here. Several national parks can be found here. Most tourists travel here to enjoy nature and Inuit culture. Nunavut has a moderate polar climate. Although the influence of the arctic is strong here it gets somewhat tempered by the surrounding ocean. This can be noticed because subzero temperatures donít usually drop below -18 degrees Celsius. Summers are short with temperatures barely reaching 7 degrees Celsius. This area has an arctic climate.
