Canada -- Nunavut  

On April 1, 1999, Canada's geographical and political map changed and a new jurisdiction, Nunavut, was created. Nunavut was formed from the eastern part of the Northwest Territories and was officially named Canada's third territory. Nunavut, "our land" in Inuktitut, is the realization of more than 20 years of negotiations and planning by the Inuit of the Eastern and Central Arctic.
