3rd SessionEdit

The Spring field session of the Legislative Assembly held from June 5, 1985, to June 13, 1985, in gymnasium of Maani Ulujuk School in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. This was the first time since 1976 that the Legislature was held in the community.[1]

District renamingEdit

Three electoral districts were renamed in the June 1985 spring session to better reflect the quality of the areas represented, Deh Cho Gah became Nahendeh meaning Our Land, Kitikimeot East became Natilikmiot meaning people of seals and Foxe Basin was renamed Amittuq meaning a long, narrow land formation[1]
