Hi, I’m Bibi, and I'm a writer who lives in Iqaluit, Nunavut. I grew up in downtown Toronto, but I traded the city life for the Arctic. I have been calling Nunavut home for almost a decade, so I’m excited to share my favourite parts about living in this beautiful territory that I’m fortunate enough to have discovered.
Nunavut, or “Our Land” in Inuktitut, is the home of the Inuit and is one of the most beautiful yet mysterious places in the world. Take it from a local: It’s time you took the trip up to the REAL North to discover some of these unbelievable places.
8.Cambridge Bay, called "Iqaluktuuttiaq" in Inuinnaqtun, meaning "good place to fish."

10.Igloolik, spelled "Iglulik" in Inuktitut, which means "place of igloos."
11.Chesterfield Inlet, which is called "Igluligarrjuk" in Inuktitut and means "place of few houses."
