The Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP) provides eligible Foreign Nationals a pathway to becoming permanent residents of Canada.

The purpose of the NTNP is to fill identified labour shortages and business investment needs in the Northwest Territories through employment and immigration of Foreign Nationals to Canada. There are three program streams within the NTNP: Employer Driven, Francophone and Business streams.

The Employer Driven Stream supports employers in retaining Foreign Nationals who meet program eligibility criteria.

The Francophone Stream allows qualified foreign nationals, who speak both French and English and have a valid job offer from an NWT Employer, to apply to the NTNP.
