Learn about Northwest Territories
The Northwest Territories (NWT) has a great future based on its natural resource industries.
Our small population of 43,000 people live in 33 communities throughout the NWT and enjoy:
- wide open spaces
- excellent government services
- good jobs and economic opportunities to work and do business
Newcomers may hear "welcome to the Northwest Territories" in many different languages. Our government recognizes 11 official languages, most of them spoken by Aboriginal peoples in the NWT.
