Nunavut, in the Canadian Far North, is home to many treasures: gold, iron, diamond and uranium. As logistics and transport become easier, the attraction for industrial and mining corporations to prospect and exploit becomes stronger. A new El Dorado is emerging in the small towns in the area, pushing up the cost of living, often at the expense of the local Inuit community.
