Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP)
Introduction to NTNP
Prospective immigrants seeking opportunities to work and settle in Canada can pursue Canadian Permanent Residency through the Northwest Territories’ Provincial Nominee Program (NTNP). Located in the northern part of Canada, the Northwest Territories offer stunning wilderness and vibrant small communities. The region has a consistent demand for skilled and other workers in sectors like mining, energy, construction, transportation, and tourism. Immigrants possessing the expertise and skills needed by the Northwest Territories Provincial Nomination Certificate can apply for Canadian Permanent Residency.
The NTNP processes applications under two main programs: the Northwest Territories Employer Driven Program and the Northwest Territories Business Immigration Program.
Northwest Territories Employer Driven Program
This program encompasses three streams:
Express Entry System for Skilled Workers
The NTNP Express Entry Stream for Skilled Workers is designed to invite Express Entry candidates who meet the eligibility criteria for the Skilled Worker stream. Approved foreign nationals can apply through this stream.
Skilled Worker Stream
This stream enables the Northwest Territories Government to nominate skilled workers with job offers from local employers. Applicants must have worked in the same position for at least six months within the Northwest Territories.
Critical Impact Worker Stream
This stream aids the Northwest Territories government in selecting skilled or unskilled workers with job offers from local employers. Applicants should have worked in the NWT for a minimum of six months.
Northwest Territories Business Immigration Program
This program consists of one stream: the Business Stream.
The NTNP Business Stream is designed for foreign nationals with the capacity to start, acquire, or invest in existing businesses. The business should contribute to the NWT’s economy and job creation.
