Situated between the Yukon and Nunavut, the Northwest Territories (NWT) is the name given to one single expansive territory.
The Northwest Territories boasts acres upon acres of untouched forests and a population of just over 40,000 residents. The territory's economy exploits its vast geological resources, including gold, diamonds, natural gas, and petroleum.
