Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories is located north of the 60th parallel and is the second largest of the three territories in Canada. It has a massive land area of more than one million square kilometres and hosts approximately 43,000 residents located throughout 33 communities, with about half of these people living in the capital city of Yellowknife. More than half of the NWT's population are Aboriginal people: Dene, Inuit (Inuvialuit) and Métis. The major employers in the territory are federal, territorial and municipal governments, tourism and businesses related to resource development.
