Contingent Profile:

Team Nunavik

Nunavik-Quebec, also known as Arctic Quebec, participated in the Arctic Winter Games in 1972, 1974, 1976 and 1986. Participation resumed again in 2000 until today.

Nunavik is the region of Quebec located above the 55th parallel. It is often included in the Arctic Winter Games because of the close cultural ties between its Inuit residents and those of Nunavut and Greenland. The Canadian Shield around Hudson Bay and Ungava Bay dominate Nunavik’s geography. Most of Nunavik-Quebec is covered by tundra, its vegetation being predominantly made up of moss and lichen.

Nunavik-Quebec’s vast territory is mainly inhabited by Inuit and a small Cri population in the more southern part of the Hudson Bay.

The flag depicts the traditional fleur de lis in each corner on a blue background, sectioned by a white cross. The team colours are Navy and Silver.
