Nunavut and its government wasn't created until 1999. That was only 23 years ago so it's still all a work in progress. Prior to that everything up there was all North West Territory except for Yukon which was carved out of the NWT in 1898 and was named the Yukon Territory with the passing of the Yukon Act.

What's not the case? I didn't say that they weren't part of Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and Labrador. I said they were Nunavut controlled regions for a few hundred yards inland from the water's edge. They are the narrow strips of shoreland taken up by the Inuit communities that have always been there. You can see the locations of those villages on the map I posted above.

The title of that page is misleading. It shows a map of Nunavut plus Inuit communities both in Nunavut itself, but also in Quebec, Labrador, etc.

The Nunavut government has no authority in the Inuit communities outside of Nunavut.

Those in Quebec, even close to the shore (and where the waters right offshore are part of Nunavut) are still under the authority of Quebec. In fact, they are part of a Quebec-specific regional Inuit government that is under the authority of the province. Nunavut has nothing to with them - at least not in terms of governance and administration.

The same is true of Inuit communities in Labrador or the remaining NWT. Nunavut has no authority there either.

No, it doesn't. It shows the border of Nunavut running between Quebec (and Ontario, and Manitoba) and all offshore islands. Those islands are in Nunavut only. Not Quebec. Not Ontario. Not Manitoba. And not Labrador (which Nunavut only borders for a handful of miles, and in that case the situation is reverse - the border is the shore of Nunavut, with Newfoundland and Labrador controlling offshore islands and adjacent waters).

Pro tip:
Maps of Canada published by the government of Canada are accurate.

The map is not wrong but one heading of it is arguably somewhat mislabelled. It says "Map of Inuit Communities in Nunavut". This is what led Zoisite to claim that Nunavut had authority over Inuit communities in what is otherwise Quebec territory. For example, Kuujjuaq (Quebec) is not part of Nunavut. It is part of Quebec.

If you dig down a bit further the map actually refers to the Inuit Nunangat, which refers to the Inuit homeland and communities in general. Some of which is inside Nunavut, and some of which is outside of it.
