How will the Nunavik Regional Government be structured?
Nunavik Regional Government Organisation Chart as per the Agreement in Principle
"The Constitution of Canada provides the provinces with exclusive powers over a variety of subject matters within their boundaries, and it also guarantees that their boundaries cannot be changed without the consent of the affected province. In addition, any change to a boundary must take place through a formal constitutional amendment provided for in the Constitution itself.
The situation is quite different for the Territories. Because they are not defined as provinces under the Canadian Constitution, their boundaries can be changed through simple federal legislation. In fact, this is exactly what happened when the Northwest Territories was divided into two and Nunavut was created in 1999. The different jurisdictions and powers of Canadian Territories derive from a Federal Act and can consequently be modified by a simple federal legislation.
