The Northwest Territories is a federal territory of Canada.  At a land area of approximately 1,144,000 km2 , it is the second-largest and the most populous of the three territories in Northern Canada. Its estimated population as of 2019 is 44,826. Yellowknife became the territorial capital in 1967.

While Nunavut is mostly Arctic tundra, the Northwest Territories has a slightly warmer climate than its neighbouring territory Nunavut and is both boreal forest and tundra.  Its most northern regions form part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.
