The 2011 census results have just been released. According to it, 845 residents of Iqaluit
say they know French and English, while 320 say they speak French as their first language. For Nunavut,
these numbers are set to 1 205 and 455 respectively.
The total population of Iqaluit is 6 699 and of Nunavut 31 906. Thus, Iqaluit has 12.6% of Francophones
and Francophiles while Nunavut has only 3.8% (source: http://goo.gl/gV4gj). The proportion of Francophones and Francophiles in Iqaluit represent a slight augmentation for the last ten years, since it was 11.9% in 2001 and 12.4% in 2006.
Comparison with the other two territories:
Northwest Territories: 3 715 Francophones and Francophiles, 9% of the total population.
Yellowknife: 2 820 Francophones and Francophiles, 15% of the total population.
Yukon: 4 420 Francophones and Francophiles, 13% of the total population.
Whitehorse: 3 320 Francophones and Francophiles, 14.3% of the total population.
Carrefour Nunavut, along with the 11 other members of the provincial and territorial RDÉE of Canada, participated this week in Regina in two days of discussion and planning on the Working Groups on Economic Issues (WGEI).
