Nunavut Route Information

CCR offers Nunavut Route information here and also in our
Nunavut Routes section
http://www.myccr.com/canoedb/nu.htm

You might check also CCR’s
Nunavut Trip Reports folder
http://www.myccr.com/SectionForums/viewforum.php?f=126
I go through the folder several times each year and post entries below.

More generally,
