The magnetic North Pole has officially moved

Earth’s magnetic North Pole has drifted so fast that authorities have had to officially redefine the location of magnetic North. The extreme wandering of the North Pole caused concerns over navigation, especially in high latitudes. Just a half-century ago, the magnetic north pole was wandering about 7 miles each year; however, in the last few years it has accelerated to 34 miles a year.

Headlines are a bit clickbaity; the position was updated a year earlier than expected. So far as I am aware of, the magnetic north is still located inside of Canada.
