On September 23, 2022, the Government of Northwest Territories (GNWT) launched a new Francophone Stream of the Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP). Prospective French-speaking candidates who are currently employed by an NWT employer or live abroad but have a valid job offer from an NWT employer can apply to the new stream. In addition, to be eligible, applicants also must have at least one year of full-time experience in the occupation for which they’re being nominated or six months of full-time experience in the NWT; possess the required territorial certification, licensing or accreditation of the specific trade or occupation; meet language requirements in both English and French; and not be a refugee claimant. As of now, the NTNP has three streams: Employer-Driven, Business, and Francophone.
