There are 9,200 Inuit in Nunavik, living in 15 villages along the Ungava Bay, Hudson's Straight, and Hudson's Bay coasts. The communities are between 1,000 and 1,900 kilometers north of Montreal. All but three of these communities have less than 1,000 inhabitants. The largest communities are Kuujjuaq, Puvirnituq, and Inukjuak. Inuit are Canadian citizens, and pay all federal and provincial sales and income taxes. There are approximately 900 non-Inuit residents living in Nunavik.
