There are many reasons to consider immigrating here. To begin with, there are excellent employment prospects. The Northwest Territories boasts the highest median household income in Canada and its capital, Yellowknife, has the highest rate of employment in the country. The territory’s economy exploits its vast geological resources, including gold, diamonds, natural gas, and petroleum. The capital city, Yellowknife, located on the shores of Great Slave Lake, is both a major industrial hub for workers in the region and a scenic town with abundant recreational opportunities.
Employer Driven Program
There are further three streams that fall under the Employer Driven Program which is as follows:
- Express Entry Stream: This Stream is to nominate ⦁ Express Entry candidates who meet the eligibility criteria for the Northwest Territories’ Skilled Worker stream. Foreign nationals who have been accepted into the ⦁ Express Entry pool may be able to apply to this Express Entry Stream for Skilled Workers.
- Skilled Worker Stream: This stream is for those individuals who have received an offer of employment in a skilled position from a Northwest Territories employer. Applicants must have 6 months of experience in the Northwest Territories for the same position.
- Critical Impact Worker Stream: This stream is for those individuals who have received an offer of employment in a semi-skilled or unskilled position from an NWT employer. Applicants must have 6 months of experience in the Northwest Territories for the same position.
Business Immigration Program
- Business Stream-Entrepreneur
The Northwest Territories Business Driven streams provide opportunities for business owners and entrepreneurs wishing to create a new business in the Northwest Territories. While the program accepts applications from all economic sectors, businesses that offer a significant benefit to the Northwest Territories economy, or who introduce a new product altogether, will be given priority when applying for provincial nomination. They need to present a business plan for a viable business with the potential to create job opportunities for Canadians in this northern region.
This stream requires a net worth of $500,000 (if you want to live outside of Yellowknife than requirement is only $250,000), $300,000 minimum investment (outside yellowknife is only 150k) and 3 years of work experience as business owner/manager.
