Nain is the largest, most northern community in Nunatsiavut with a population of approximately 1,200 friendly Inuit/Northerners. Founded by the Moravian Missionaries in 1771, Nain is home to the Nunatsiavut Government’s Administrative office building situated in the center of town as well as the Nunatsiavut Research Centre, which coordinates various research projects that are part of Imappivut. In the building you will also find the Kuatsevik, Nain’s community freezer where the staff butcher and pack food brought in by local hunters and gatherers to provide wild food for community members. Nain is located on the north side of Unity Bay which is protected by a large complex of biologically diverse islands and eventually out to the Atlantic Ocean. Thriving with culture, Nain is one of the oldest permanent Inuit settlements in Canada.
