Student and Youth

Students-TOKW 2018

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) supports northern post-secondary students in their pursuit of education by providing summer work opportunities and support to obtain practicum and placements within the Northwest Territories as the students gain valuable work experience and enhance employment prospects upon completion of their studies.


Practicum Opportunities

The GNWT along with the Northwest Territories Health and Social Services Authority, the Hay River Health and Social Services Authority, and the Tlicho Community Services Agency support Health and Social Service Students who have an interest in rural practicum and placements. 


Summer Student Employment

The GNWT offers multiple Summer Student Employment Opportunities. Post-secondary students are hired as casual employees and are subject to the same terms and conditions as other casual employees. Between April 15 and August 15, students will be given a higher priority than non-students registered in the same Affirmative Action category for casual employment.
