Why did the Inuit people come to Canada?

During the ice age that lasted from about 50,000 to 17,000 years ago Asia and North America were joined by land that was as much as 1,000 miles wide for a time. People were able to roam over this entire land area. When the ice age ended sea level rose and cut the connection between Asia and North America, leaving some of these people in each place. As the ice receded further some of the people left in North America migrated south, some populated the far north of North America, including Canada. In a sense then, the Inuit did not come to Canada. Rather their ancestors were stranded in North America when the sea level rose.
