Our territory is not only large, it is also very diverse with many different landscapes, seascapes, climatic zones and ecological systems. It is important to understand that when we refer to our territory, we always mean the sea and the sea ice, fresh water lakes and rivers as well as the land itself.

The diversity of our land is reflected in the diversity of the regions and groups that comprise the Inuit of Canada. Yet at the same time, this diversity is woven together with language and many other cultural features that all of our groups and regions hold in common.
