Ottawa, July 9 (IBNS): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has joined the Nunavut celebration to mark the 25th anniversary of the territory.

Nunavut territory was created 25 years ago by the Canadian government with the passage of two pieces of legislation in the parliament.

The legislation led to the recognisation of Nunavut as a territory.

Trudeau issued a statement to say, "Nunavut, which in Inuktitut means ‘our land,’ is rich in tradition, culture, and sense of community, thanks to generations of Inuit who have cared for and lived on the land for millennia. From Sanikiluaq to Grise Fiord, Nunavut is home to vast landscapes, vibrant languages, and many peoples. Forward-looking, resilient, and diverse, Canada’s youngest territory embodies our promise as a country.

"Canada is an Arctic country, and the North is at the heart of our identity as Canadians. In close collaboration with Indigenous, territorial, and provincial partners, we are working to co-develop an Arctic Policy Framework that will help us to better address the needs and priorities of the North, and create opportunities for people across the Arctic."

Trudeau believes Nunavut will play a significant role in the country's future.

He said: " As we look to Canada’s future prosperity, we know that Nunavut will continue to play a key role. The traditional knowledge held by the people in the territory – a young and growing population – will help lead the way to a more inclusive, sustainable future for all of us.
