The Northwest Territories are a part of the northern region of Canada. The Northwest Territories is divided into five regions, which roughly correspond to the territories of the original native inhabitants:. There are a few ways to get into Yellowknife by driving: With the construction of the Deh Cho Bridge across the Mackenzie River just south of Fort Providence , travellers have access to Yellowknife all year long now.

There are ice roads that people travel on, but regular roads can also be incapacitated by the weather. Make sure to check up on weather and construction reports, as roads could be flooded and routes inaccessible. One of the best ways to get around the Northwest Territories is by car. This gives you unlimited freedom to chose your own itinerary. Picture the scene - you're driving down the highway and you look to your left, you see a vast expanse of wilderness, maybe a picturesque sunset and even a herd of caribou going about their business.

You look to the right and a black bear is peeping out from behind trees. With uninterrupted views of the wide open space and wildlife, you will be alert to all the new sights and sounds until you come across a sleepy little community that offers a camping ground with small restaurant of home cooked delights and a welcoming atmosphere.

Car hire is a good resource to make the most of in the Northwest Territories. Reliable and cost effective, car hire companies will be able to advise you of the best routes to spot wildlife and the best routes to take you from waterfall to river to lake. Another of the best ways to travel around the Northwest Territories is by plane, due to the airports dotting the landscape, as well as the lack of roads and rails throughout many parts of the Northwest Territories.

Indeed, passenger rail service has yet to be extended to the Territories. Yellowknife essentially began partially through the efforts of bush pilots, and float planes can presumably land on the territories' many lakes they are known to land in Yellowknife Bay.

These airline carriers that offer services to, from, and within the Northwest Territories: With approximately potential Aurora viewing nights in the year, the Northwest Territories is the best place in the world to view the dazzling lights.

One option is to dogsled, snowmobile, or drive to the beautiful lake-front tipis of Aurora Village and experience the power and wonder of the Aurora. However many free options are available, just get to a point outside the lights of the city and you'll have a great view.

The NWT is made up of countless lakes and waterways. Spend an afternoon wrestling a sly Northern pike or reeling in a 40 lb trout. Several local guides are available at a cost, or you can always get a hold of a map and try and brave it yourself.

Northwest Territory - Wikipedia

Most aboriginal people now live in towns and small settlements. Although hunting and fishing continue to provide some food, these settlements rely on imported food, fuel, and other necessities.

The territories are among the most sparsely populated habitable regions of the world. Nearly all the population lives in small settlements along the Mackenzie River, with smaller numbers along the Arctic coastlines of the mainland and northern islands. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries the territories had much lower rates of international immigration than the Canadian provinces; they also tended to lose more residents to interprovincial migration than they gained.

The economy of the territories depends on the exploitation of natural resources. Services play a significant role in the economy, but manufacturing is negligible. Because royalties and other revenues from natural resource use in the territories are collected by the federal government, the territorial administration relies on funds transferred to it from the federal authority for most of its revenues.

Government assistance in the development of major resources has been provided mainly in the form of roads, electric power facilities, mapping, and geologic services. Government agencies produce and distribute electric power throughout the territories and provide certain transportation services. Although there are areas of arable land in the southern parts of the Mackenzie valley, farming is not profitable. Some field crops are grown for local use, but most foodstuffs must be imported, greatly increasing their price.

Several sawmills process the timber only for local use. Trapping continues to provide income for some of the aboriginal population. Muskrat, beaver, marten, mink, and lynx are the most important furs taken in the Mackenzie area, while Arctic fox remains the principal fur in the Arctic regions. Fishing and hunting of sea mammals also provide some employment. Whitefish, lake trout , pickerel, and northern pike are fished commercially on Great Slave Lake and some smaller lakes.

Seals and small whales are hunted for food, and some sealskins are marketed commercially. Mining has been the principal nonrenewable resource industry of the territories. Gold has been mined at Yellowknife on the north shore of Great Slave Lake since the late s.

Large-scale lead and zinc mining was carried on at Pine Point from the late s until the s, when the ore deposit became depleted. Smaller metal mining projects have been carried out at widely scattered sites, a few in the high Arctic regions.

Silver, copper, tungsten , and cadmium are among the metals that have been produced. Diamonds were first discovered at Lac de Gras, northeast of Great Slave Lake, in , setting off a prospecting boom that led to the discovery of several other commercially significant diamond-bearing properties.

The first commercial production of diamonds began in Petroleum fuels for use in the territories are obtained from refineries located at the Norman Wells and Pointed Mountain fields. The Mackenzie delta and Beaufort Sea areas also have substantial oil and gas reserves. Gasoline and diesel fuel are important both for transportation and for electric power generation.

Large-scale hydroelectric power development has not been feasible , but a number of small sites have been developed to supply power to local industries and communities. Although mining is the dominant industry in the territories, services constitute a vital part of the economy.

At the beginning of the 21st century about half of the labour force was employed in various service industries. Another fifth of the labour force worked in public administration. Tourism is an important portion of the service sector; adventure tours, driving tours, sportfishing, hunting, and such natural phenomena as the aurora borealis and long summer days attract visitors from other parts of Canada, Japan, and the United States. Nearly all passenger and much freight traffic is carried by air services.

Flights link Yellowknife and other major settlements along the Mackenzie valley to Edmonton , Alta. Surface transportation for heavy freight is mainly by water. The waterway is supplemented in the southern part of the Fort Smith region by the Mackenzie Highway and a railway connecting Hay River to the trans-Canada rail systems in Alberta.

Tractor trains and other overland vehicles using temporary winter roadways carry freight into remote areas. Snowmobiles are used for light winter travel. Ultimate constitutional responsibility for government in the territories rests with the federal government in Ottawa, but most provincial responsibilities have been delegated to a territorial administration in Yellowknife.

The administration consists of a commissioner, who is appointed by the federal government, and the Legislative Assembly , whose members are directly elected to four-year terms. The assembly reflects the distinct ethnic mix of the territorial population. There is no system of political parties, and decision making in the assembly is by consensus determined by majority vote.

Members of the assembly choose a speaker, a government leader known locally as the premier , and an executive council cabinet , whose members are appointed to various ministerial portfolios by the government leader. The territories are represented by one elected member in the Canadian House of Commons and, since , by one appointed member in the Canadian Senate.

Justice is dispensed by a territorial court system, a police magistrate, and several justices of the peace. Law enforcement is carried out by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Missionaries provided nearly all the education and health care available in the territories until the s, but since then both have become mainly government responsibilities.

The territorial Department of Education, Culture, and Employment provides elementary and secondary schooling, and a number of postsecondary programs and courses are offered by a community college system at several centres throughout the territories. Since the s, local control of education has been strengthened through the development of elected local and regional administrative bodies.

Many aboriginal settlements have been provided with schools under federally sponsored programs aimed at improving access to elementary and secondary education for aboriginal children. The territorial government also gives financial assistance to many students who pursue postsecondary education, either inside or outside the territories.

Health care is provided through comprehensive territorial hospital and medical-services insurance plans. The territorial Arts Council, established in , advises the territorial minister of education, culture, and employment on policies regarding the arts.

It also recommends financial awards for various artistic projects. The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife is dedicated to preserving the culture and heritage of the people of the territories.

In addition to providing many services and programs throughout the territories, the centre houses the territorial museum and archives. Amateur sports are promoted by Sport North, a federation of territorial sports organizations. Athletes from the Northwest Territories also regularly participate in the biennial Arctic Winter Games, in which athletes from northern regions around the world compete in a variety of modern and traditional games and sports. Modern forms of transportation and communication have done much to break down the isolation of life in the North, and contemporary North American popular culture is evident in most communities.

Radio, satellite television, and the Internet have made a wide range of entertainment and educational material available in even the most remote settlements.

Radio stations relay programs throughout the territories, and most of the larger settlements have their own weekly newspapers. Some even have local television stations that originate programs for distribution in the territories.

Public funding supports local programming to help revitalize the linguistic and cultural heritage of the Dene. Vikings probably visited parts of the Canadian Arctic during the Middle Ages, but there are no records of exploration until the voyage in of the English mariner Martin Frobisher in search of the Northwest Passage to the Orient.

Expeditions in the 17th century also failed to find the route, but they added to knowledge of the Arctic regions. Interest in finding the route waned in the 18th century, but whaling ships became commonplace in the Arctic waters. The first recorded exploration of the mainland was by Samuel Hearne , who in —72 journeyed from the west coast of Hudson Bay to the mouth of the Coppermine River on the northern coast.

Other inland explorations were mainly the work of Montreal-based fur traders. In the 19th century there was renewed interest in finding the Northwest Passage. Sir John Franklin and others explored much of Mackenzie District now largely the regions of Fort Smith and Inuvik in the Northwest Territories and Kitikmeot in Nunavut and mapped parts of the northern coastline during the s—work that Thomas Simpson continued in — Searchers for the lost Franklin expedition of —48 explored and mapped other parts of the eastern Arctic in the following decade.

Later, a series of expeditions attempted to reach the North Pole; such exploits continued into the 20th century but by then were overshadowed by more-practical activities directed at identifying the resource potential of the Canadian North. Settlements were first established to serve the whaling fleets and fur traders.

Missionaries became active in the Mackenzie valley in and in the eastern Arctic toward the end of the century. No resident administrative authorities were established within the present limits of the Northwest Territories until the 20th century. In the Arctic islands claimed by Britain also were placed under Canadian jurisdiction. Separation of the Yukon Territory now Yukon , creation of new provinces, and enlargement of other provinces reduced the Northwest Territories to its pre limits by The Royal Canadian Mounted Police were made responsible for maintaining law and order and for providing whatever governmental administration was required in the area.

Fur traders, missionaries, and the police directed the life of the Northwest Territories until the s, when discovery of oil near Fort Norman on the Mackenzie River prompted the Canadian government to establish a territorial administration for the area. Mining replaced the fur trade as the most important industry in Mackenzie District in the s. World War II brought much government-financed construction activity to the territories.

In the southern Mackenzie area the Canol pipeline, linking the oil field at Norman Wells to a refinery at Whitehorse in Yukon, and construction of several large airfields in the eastern Arctic did much to open the Canadian North to further exploration and development.

Meanwhile, a great expansion of government-sponsored health, education, and welfare services transformed living and social conditions throughout the North. The pace of development slowed in the s, in part because of growing opposition on the part of aboriginal groups to commercial exploitation of resources in the area.

An inquiry conducted by Thomas R. Berger, a Canadian Supreme Court justice, into a proposed Mackenzie valley natural gas pipeline led to increased public concern over environmental issues in the region and recognition of aboriginal land claims and other rights.
