Inuit dialects. Aivilik is the dark blue to the west of Hudson Bay.

Aivilik, also known as Aivilingmiutut, Aivilimmiutut, Aivillirmiut, and Kangiq?niq, is a Canadian dialect of the Inuit language spoken along the northwestern shores of Hudson Bay in Nunavut. The governments of Nunavut and the Northwest Territories generally consider it to be a dialect of Inuktitut, due to its location in Nunavut, as do some linguists,[1] but it is instead sometimes classified as a dialect of Inuvialuk.[2] However, Inuktitut and Inuvialuk form a dialect continuum with few sharp boundaries.
