Nunatsiavut, which means ‘our beautiful land' in Inuttitut, is the homeland of Labrador Inuit. We have lived in these magnificent lands for thousands of years. From the majesty of the Torngat Mountains to the rugged beauty of the rivers and coastlines, Nunatsiavut has always been our home.
The Nunatsiavut Government was established in 2005. It is born out of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement, the result of three decades of work to realize our long-held dream of self-governance. The Nunatsiavut Government is a regional Inuit government within the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador. We are the first Inuit region to achieve self-government, an accomplishment of which all Labrador Inuit should be proud.
