With more than one million square kilometers of land and a population of just over 40,000 people, making it the most populous northern territory in Canada, the Northwest Territories boast a wealth of immigration opportunities for foreign workers and entrepreneurs.
The Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP), a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), is a collection of immigration pathways that provide an opportunity for foreign nationals to become Canadian permanent residents.
The NTNP targets workers in skilled, semi-skilled, and low-skilled occupations through employer-driven immigration streams. Its business-driven counterpart, on the other hand, seeks entrepreneurs and business owners from all sectors to create and establish new businesses in this remote northern region.
The province operates several immigration streams divided among three categories:
This stream gives skilled workers in the federal Express Entry pool the opportunity to partake in an accelerated permanent residence application. Candidates must have a job offer from an eligible Northwest Territories employer.
The Northwest Territories Employer Driven streams provide opportunities for foreign nationals with experience in occupations classified as National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, B, C, or D and a full-time, permanent job offer from a qualified employer.
The Northwest Territories Business Driven streams provide opportunities for business owners and entrepreneurs wishing to create a new business in the Northwest Territories. While the program accepts applications from all economic sectors, businesses that offer a significant benefit to the Northwest Territories economy, or who introduce a new product altogether, will be given priority when applying for provincial nomination.
