Secrets

Lean in close.

We have a secret to share.

 

In fact, we have 150 secrets – and we’ll be sharing them with you for 150 days.

Some of them are big secrets, like the fact that the Northwest Territories is the best place in the world to view the spectacular Aurora Borealis.  Or that we have one of the most amazing waterfalls in Canada, almost twice the height of Niagara.  We’ll also share smaller secrets, tucked away in every corner of this vast territory. 

And there’s more.  In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, we also plan to give away 150 round trip Air Canada  tickets to the Northwest Territories from any of Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton or Vancouver.

There are two ways you can win one of these tickets.  You can complete the contest entry form on this page, or you could find a “winners” coupon inside one of the 30,000 folders to be distributed in several major Canadian cities through February and March.  (follow us on Facebook  to find out where these folders will be distributed)

Five “super prizes” will also be awarded.  A super prize includes airline travel to the Northwest Territories for two people, local transportation, hotel accommodation and a sampling of activities in one of our five tourism regions.

Airline ticket winners will be selected at three dates through the contest:  February 21, March 21 and April 10.  Super prize winners will be selected on April 10. 

For complete contest details, check out the contest rules.     

Now’s the time to get acquainted with Canada’s second largest jurisdiction – a place where modern communities are surrounded with the purest wilderness in the world. 

Come on back every day to discover a new Northwest Territories secret. 

And if we’ve missed any secrets, we encourage you to submit your NWT secrets on our Facebook page.

Our Story, Canada’s Story

In Canada’s early days, the Northwest Territories made up more than half the land mass of Canada. Over the years Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Nunavut were carved from the NWT, and still we are the second largest jurisdiction in Canada. And possibly the best kept secret in this country. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to discover our many secrets – from photogenic bison to gold that’s paved in streets.
