Situated between the Yukon and Nunavut, the Northwest Territories (NWT) is the name given to one single expansive territory.
The Northwest Territories boasts acres upon acres of untouched forests and a population of just over 40,000 residents. The territory's economy exploits its vast geological resources, including gold, diamonds, natural gas, and petroleum.
The capital city, Yellowknife, located on the shores of Great Slave Lake, is both a major industrial hub for workers in the region and a scenic town with abundant recreational opportunities.
Through the Northwest Territories’ Provincial Nominee Program (NTNP) program, prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the province may receive a Northwest Territories Provincial Nomination Certificate, which will allow that foreign national to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.
