Changes to Employer Driven Stream

Friday, July 14, 2017

As part of the Department of Education, Culture and Employment’s culture of continuous improvement, please note changes to the eligibility criteria have been made to the Nominee Program’s Employer Driven streams (Critical Impact Worker, Skilled Worker/ NWT Express Entry streams).

In response to stakeholder requests for simplified application materials and to enhance program integrity and accountability, program guidelines have been separated into two documents. One document is solely for the Critical Impact Worker stream and the other for the Skilled Worker/NWT Express Entry streams. These updated program guidelines can be found under the Employer Tab of the website, or emailed upon request.

These changes are effective today. However, please note:

  • For applications submitted on or prior to July 14, 2017: your application will be processed under the previous guidelines.
  • For applications submitted after July 14, 2017: please ensure your application package is consistent with the eligibility criteria and includes supporting information required under the new guidelines.

In the coming weeks, Program staff will deliver information sessions on the updated guidelines. These sessions will provide detailed information on the updated guidelines and provide opportunity for stakeholders to ask questions on the guidelines, forms and other Nominee Program Employer Driven Stream processes. We encourage all interested employers and other partners to attend. Details on the date and location will be posted on the website. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, for more information on the updated guidelines, please contact program staff at 1-855-440-5450 or at
