Looks like Nunavut (Territory in northern Canada) has finally decided to follow the rest of Canada and the United States.
An amendment to the Interpretation Act was registered on February 19/2007.
See page 18 of February's the Nunavut Gazette:

All of the assumptions that were made in the TZ database are now correct; no further changes are required.

As per usual, I have updated my Canadian DST web page at

I came accross a little news article from Northern News Services dated November 13/2006.
It claims that the community of Resolute (located on Conrnwallis Island in Nunavut) moved from Central Time to Eastern Time last November.
Basically the community did not change its clocks at the end of daylight saving.
It is not clear whether or not the clocks will change again on March 11 of if they will stay fixed on Eastern Standard Time.
Technically this requires a new zone. Ouch.  Is it worth it for a population of of 215 people?
