The NWT Express Entry category is for Skilled Workers who have a profile in the Express Entry System, a federal program with expedited application times for skilled individuals who want to work and live in the NWT.
Express Entry helps employers to secure skilled employees by fast-tracking applications for permanent residency. When approved by the us, the candidate will receive 600 points within the Express Entry pool.
To be eligible for NWT Express Entry, a foreign national must meet the following criteria:
- be accepted into Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry Pool;
- have a profile registered in the Express Entry system;
- have a Job Seeker Validation Code; and
- meet the criteria of the Skilled Worker stream.
For further information about mandatory eligibility criteria you can refer to the program guidelines.
The NWT Nominee Program’s Employer-Driven Stream is now accepting applications through an online portal found on the “Apply here” section of this website.
Please note that we will continue to accept paper-based applications until October 31, 2020. After this date, applications will need to be submitted exclusively through the online application portal.
