Territories du Nord-Ouest (T.N.-O.)

The Northwest Territories is the most northern province in Canada, and it is divided up into five distinct regions. It is also the least populous province in Canada, with a population of slightly more than 45,000 people spread out over an area of 1,346 million square kilometres. Yellowknife, the province’s main city, provides a wealth of opportunities not found in the region’s plethora of smaller communities. The majority of newcomers to Canada settle in large urban centres like Toronto, Vancouver, or Calgary, which can make it more challenging to find work in Canada. On the other hand, the likelihood of obtaining a job offer is significantly higher in less populated parts of the country. The additional perk is having the opportunity to take in the breathtaking scenery of Canada’s remote north. During the winter months, you can see the aurora borealis, sometimes known as the northern lights. You can also visit several stunning national parks that are home to North American bison and spread across thousands of square kilometres. You have an opportunity waiting for you to take advantage of in the Northwest Territories.

You can obtain a provincial nomination through one of these three channels: Express Entry, the Skilled Worker Programme, or the Critical Impact Worker Programme. If you want to apply for immigration under the Express Entry programme, you have to ensure that you meet all of the standards for federal immigration. Despite its more demanding prerequisites, this programme may provide a route to permanent residency that is more quickly accessible; yet, it also has more stringent standards. The first thing you need to do is figure out which stream you have to apply to, and then get a legitimate employment offer from an employer who is designated to work in the Northwest Territory (NWT). The Northwest Territories are just like the rest of Canada in that regard; they provide a wide variety of work opportunities. You are required to demonstrate that you are eligible for the stream that you have selected and to submit your application either to the provincial government of the NWT or through the Express Entry system.

In order to apply for this stream, you will need to register with the Immigrate to NWT government portal and create a profile for yourself. It is quite similar to the Express Entry system in the sense that, if your skills and qualifications are in demand, you will likewise receive an Invitation to Apply.
