Through the Northwest Territories’ Provincial Nominee Program (NTNP), prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the Northwest Territories may receive a Provincial Nomination Certificate, which will allow them to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence.

The NTNP accepts applications under two programs, one of which has three distinct streams:

Employer Driven Program

Northwest Territories — Express Entry Stream

The NTNP Express Entry Stream for Skilled Workers is designed to nominate Express Entry candidates who meet the eligibility criteria for the Northwest Territories’ Skilled Worker stream. Foreign nationals who have been accepted into the federal Express Entry pool may be able to apply to this Express Entry Stream for Skilled Workers.

Skilled Worker Stream 

The NTNP Skilled Worker Stream enables the Government of Northwest Territories to nominate individuals who have received an offer of employment in a skilled position from a Northwest Territories employer. Applicants must have already worked in the position in the Northwest Territories for a minimum of six months.
