Situated between the Yukon and Nunavut, the Northwest Territories (NWT) is the name given to one single expansive territory. Though situated in the far north of Canada, the NWT is somewhat warmer than its neighboring provinces, and boasts miles upon miles of untouched forests. Despite its population of just over 40,000 residents, the territory boasts the highest per capita GDP in the entire country, largely as a result of the NWT’s 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.

Due to the challenges of vast distances, a small but growing population, the high cost of materials and labor, and extreme climate make it costly to maintain Canada’s high standards of living in Nunavut. Residents must cope with a cost of living that can be significantly higher than many other places in Canada. The average household income in the Nunavut area is between $32,000 and $35,000 per year. However, the minimum wage stands at $11.00/hr., the highest in Canada. In addition, the federal government takes a number of initiatives to compensate for the high cost of goods and services in Nunavut to ensure that its residents can enjoy the same standard of living that is available to all Canadians.

Foreign nationals wishing to relocate to Northwest Territories may apply under the Northwest Territories Program for provincial nomination. An application may be submitted under one of the following four categories:

  • Skilled Worker
  • Critical Impact Worker
  • Entrepreneur Business
  • Self-Employed Business
