If you work, live or do business in Nunavut, you probably know about the Territory's unique and historic language legislation. Passed by the Governments of Nunavut and Canada, the legislation aims to promote and strengthen the use of the Inuit language in every aspect of life in Nunavut, while protecting the rights of those who speak any or all of the Territory's official languages.

But just how much do YOU know about the Legislation? Let's find out. And just to make it interesting, the first reader to provide the correct answers will win one of our completely fabulous new NVision Golf Shirts, personally approved by Ron Ryan.

Here's all you have to do: respond to the following ten True/False questions in an email to trudden@NVisiongroup.ca. Do NOT answer in the comments on this page: you don't want other folks copying your work! 🙂 Correct answers and a winner will be released next week.

On your marks - get set - ATII!
