Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories’ main industries include mining, natural resources, and tourism. Mining plays a pivotal role, particularly in diamond extraction, with several active mines contributing significantly to the economy. The territory also boasts vast natural resources like oil, gas, and minerals. Additionally, traditional industries such as hunting, fishing, and trapping remain culturally and economically significant for many Indigenous communities. Tourism, drawn by the region’s stunning landscapes, Northern Lights, and outdoor activities, contributes to the economy. Working conditions in mining often involve remote locations and specialized skills, while traditional industries embrace unique cultural practices and tourism caters to seasonal demands with opportunities in hospitality and outdoor adventure.
