In response to the negative impacts of COVID-19 on NWT mineral exploration, several changes have been implemented to the Mining Incentive Program (MIP) for 2020-21. These changes provide additional support to Northwest Territories
(NWT) mineral exploration and ensure that work is being conducted safely and in accordance with current public health
measures.
 

COVID-19 Information Non-Resident Workers

The Government of Northwest Territories is able to vaccinate non-resident workers who risk importing COVID-19 into the Northwest Territories. This includes seasonal or rotational workers who are in the Northwest Territories for extended periods of time. Non-resident workers are encouraged to access the vaccine in their home province or territory before they come to the Northwest Territories if that is an option. Workers are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the final dose of vaccine.
