For the Canadian Territory, see Northwest Territoriesmarker

Northwest Territories was a federal electoral district represented in the Canadianmarker House of Commons from 1962 to 1979. It was composed of the territory of the Northwest Territoriesmarker.

This riding was created in 1962 from Mackenzie River riding. It was abolished in 1976 when it was divided into Western Arctic and Nunatsiaq ridings.

From 1887 to 1905, the only areas of the NWT with representation in Parliament were those areas that became part of present-day provinces (Alberta, Saskatchewan and western Manitoba). From 1905 to 1947, the NWT was not represented in Parliament. From 1947 to 1962, the southwestern NWT was represented only by the electoral district of Yukon—Mackenzie River and then Mackenzie River. In 1962, the electoral district of NWT was created to represent the entire territory, for the first time giving all Canadian territory a representative in Parliament.
