Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP)

Situated between the Yukon and Nunavut, the Northwest Territories (NWT) is the name given to one single expansive territory.

NWT 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.

The NTNP is the Northwest Territories’ Provincial Nominee Program. Through this 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 with processing times that are faster than other Canadian immigration classes.The NTNP accepts applications under two immigration programs, each with their own set of stream:

    • Northwest Territories Express Entry
    • Employer Driven Program
    • Business Driven Program

Northwest Territories — Express Entry Stream

Candidates who are eligible to enter the federal Express Entry pool by qualifying for one of the three federal immigration programs (Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, or Canadian Experience Class) may also be eligible for the Northwest Territories’ Express Entry Stream, which nominates certain potential immigrants who meet the criteria of the Skilled Worker Stream.

 Employer Driven Program

Critical Impact Worker Stream

The NTNP accepts applications under this stream from applicants who have received an offer of employment in a semi-skilled or unskilled position from an NWT employer. Applicants must have already worked in the position in the Northwest Territories for a minimum of six months.

Skilled Worker Stream

The NTNP accepts applications under this stream from applicants who have received an offer of employment in a skilled position from a Northwest Territories employer.

Business Driven Program

Entrepreneur Stream

The NTNP accepts applications under this stream from entrepreneurs and/or owner-operators of businesses who wish to establish a business in the Northwest Territories. Businesses in all economic sectors are welcome to apply; however, businesses that will introduce a new product or a product of significant benefit to the Northwest Territories are given priority.

Self Employed Stream

NOTE: The Self Employed Stream of the NTNP’s Business Driven Program is permanently closed.

The NTNP accepts applications under this stream from self-employed professionals who plan to establish business outlets or professional practices that will provide services that are in demand in the Northwest Territories.
