About Us

The NWTRPA was established in 1989 to serve the needs and interests of NWT recreation and on the land leaders. Directed by a volunteer Board of Directors from each region in the territory, the organization has evolved to become the leading recreation organization in the NWT.


The NWTRPA is a membership-based organization that promotes quality, accessible recreation across the NWT by supporting leaders, communities, and partners, primarily through training, advocacy, and networking.
