  • Description of Archive: "The NWT Archives' primary task is to ensure that a fair, accurate and complete record of government activity is identified, acquired and preserved. The NWT Archives also strives to ensure that archival materials relevant to the human history of the NWT, created by individuals and organizations in the private sector, are also preserved and made accessible. Our holdings document the history of the NWT including the oral tradition and history of NWT Aboriginal peoples, constitutional development in the NWT leading up to the creation of Nunavut, the activities of the Government of the Northwest Territories since 1967, the fur trade, aviation industry and the development of the mining industry."
