Nunavut Day

What is happening in July 9? Maybe nothing much in my country. Maybe nothing much in other countries. However, in Canada, it is a holiday today.

July 9 is a Nunavut Day in Canada. This is actually the annual holiday in Canada. On this date, Nunavut was officially separated from the Northwest Territories. This became possible through the Nunavut Claims Agreement Act and the Nunavut Act in July 9, 1993. Further, it became a Canadian territory in April 1, 1999.

This event is celebrated through group meals, local gatherings, games and dances and more merry making. Above all, inculcating the heritage left by this memoir through competitions and presentations.
