If anyone is interested:
I started using Project-GC http://project-gc.com/Home/Overview for our statistics and mapping.
We attended the first Nunavut Event - "Our Land" http://coord.info/GC1QZJM but we no longer have Nunavut on our map. It turns out that Project_GC uses "Official Government of Canada Boundaries" and according to the "Natural low water mark, defined in Manitoba Boundaries Extension Act, 1912", we would have had to go at least 110 metres farther out on the ice to hold the event in Nunavut.

The second Nunavut event used the same coordinates as the first.

I'm sure that most of us walked out at least another 110 meters on the first trip. We were all trying to see how close we could get to the sunken ship... maybe we can change the coordinates of the event...http://www.mbgeocaching.ca/gallery/churchill2009/Trove+Chasers/Churchill+Trip+047.jpg.html

Here is a link that adds a little history to the subject.

I think that the article also implies that the northern boundary of Manitoba has never been very precisely defined or surveyed.
