Why the Northwest Territories?

Located above the 60th parallel, the Northwest Territories awaits with seemingly endless lakes and unmatched vistas. The opportunities available in our communities are perfect for the outdoors enthusiast looking for adventure, a healthy work/life balance, and an escape from the hustle of the big city.

The Dehcho Region is best known for sky-scraping mountains and the beautiful taiga plains that are home to a variety of wildlife. Also famous in this region is the powerful Mackenzie River, Nahanni National Park Reserve and Virginia Falls, which towers at twice the height of Niagara Falls. 

To the east lies the Fort Smith Region with the southern-most community in the NWT, Fort Smith which hugs the border with Alberta. Not only is there near-by adventures in Wood Buffalo National Park and the Slave River, but Fort Smith is home to the largest Dark Sky Preserve in the world for some of the best northern lights views in the territory.

To the northwest lies the explorer’s dream, the Sahtu Region which is home to beautiful mountain landscapes, the famous Canol Heritage trails and Great Bear Lake, whose deep waters make for excellent fishing.

On the northernmost peninsula of the NWT near the Arctic Ocean, you will find the Beaufort Delta region. A newly created highway connecting Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk now lets you drive all the way to the edge of the territory through pingo dotted landscapes so you can dip your toe in the Arctic Ocean!
