Nunavut is the largest and northernmost Canadian territory. It officially separated from the Northwest Territories in 1999 via the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. The word Nunavut means "Our Land" in Inuit. The Inuit people make up about 4/5ths of the population of Nunavut. The rest of its citizens are of European descent. The Nunavut Health Care Plan is a government health plan for the entire territory. Residents of Nunavut living in the territory for at least three months, and those who intend to stay for at least twelve months, are eligible for coverage. The largest hospital in the region is the Qikiqtani General Hospital in Iqaluit but there is no hospital library. Health information is available at the local Iqaluit public library.
