Employer Stream Program Guideline Updates

Monday, September 17, 2018

Coming into effect September 15, 2018, the Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP) Employer Stream will have revised program Guidelines, criteria and forms.

ECE regularly updates and revises its program criteria to enhance program integrity and efficiency. These changes will serve to better assist employers in addressing their critical labour market needs, improve upon the delivery of the Nominee Program, and include:

  • Reduced period of time that a prospective foreign national must be employed by the nominating employer before being eligible for the NTNP from 12 to 6 months, under the Program’s Critical Impact Worker (CIW) stream;
  • Shortened advertising requirement under the CIW stream from 90 to 60 days; and
  • Clarified requirements and processes on the use of authorized representatives, application appeals, and wages in job advertisements and employment offers.

Please review the entire program guidelines to see all the Nominee Program changes.

Please note that any applications submitted before September 15, 2018 will be assessed under the previous guidelines.

For any questions, please contact NTNP program staff by phone or email at:
