Northwest Territories can be said as an ideal territory for foreign nationals who are interested to immigrate to Canada as there is a dearth of local talent to fulfil the huge number of open positions.

Only the eligible foreign workers who have a job offer from a Northwest Territories employer get invited to apply for Canadian PR through one of the Employer Driven streams of the NTNP. Both the prospective employer and the foreign national must meet certain eligibility requirements and partake in the process of the application. The following stream are included in the Northwest Territories Employer-Driven program:
•    Northwest Territories Critical Impact Workers
•    Northwest Territories Skilled Workers
•    Northwest Territories Express Entry

Northwest Territories Critical Impact Workers

Foreign nationals who have experience of at least 6 months in the same semi-skilled occupation may be eligible for a provincial nomination in the stream, provided they successfully fill a full-time, permanent position in low-skilled and semi-skilled occupations.

Northwest Territories Skilled Workers

The applicants who have the required experience and certification or the accreditation for a high-skilled occupation may be eligible for this stream, only if they have a full-time, permanent job offer from a qualifying Northwest Territories employer.

Northwest Territories Express Entry

The candidates who have a job offer from eligible Northwest Territories employers and meet the eligibility requirements for one of the Federal economic programs managed by Express Entry have an advantage of an accelerated Northwest Territories Express Entry stream.
