The Northwest Territories is defined as one of the three territories which have the option of providing a nomination program in order to nominate applicants just like other provinces. After the Northwest Territories nominates an applicant, he/she may then apply for the federal government permanent resident status in Canada. Those applicants who are nominated by the provincial program could have their case processed more quickly than in comparison to the other applicants who apply through other programs.
The Northwest Territories have launched some very good programs in order to provide a chance to people who have a desire to settle in this part of Canada. Similar to other provinces, there are a number of streams through which an applicant may apply in order to be eligible for Canadian Permanent Residence.
Below is presented the list of four categories under the Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP):
