Living in the NWT
Live. Work. Expand Your Opportunities.
Welcome to a land of contrast! The Northwest Territories is 1.35 million square kilometres of mountains, forests and tundra threaded by clean rivers feeding thousands of pristine lakes. Over 40,000 people, from all walks of life, inhabit this rugged natural beauty.
Living amidst one of Canada's most vibrant indigenous culture, means you're never far from the energy and excitement that comes from such diversity. Just steps outside our urban centers, you can view rare wildlife, from white wolves and white whales to herds of bison, prowling bears, moose and caribou by the thousands. In the crisp winter months the territory is transformed into a snowcapped wonderland. You can watch the world’s best northern lights dance through the night and spend the day snow-mobiling, ice fishing, or tobogganing. In the summer months the land is enveloped in 24-hour daylight while the sun never sets. The great outdoors beckon!
