Seeing a doctor in Nunavut
Nunavut is the newest, largest, and most northern territory in all of Canada. It’s one of the most sparsely populated regions on earth, with nearly 36,000 people spread over just under two million square kilometres.
There is only one hospital to serve Nunavut, which is located in Iqaluit, as well as two community health centres. There’s also a noted shortage of healthcare workers in this territory. That’s why we created Maple — to make online health care accessible in Nunavut and the rest of Canada.
