Do temporary employers need to register?

Temporary employers are exempt from registration.

The WSCC considers an employer to be temporary if:

  • they are based outside of the Northwest Territories or Nunavut;
  • their workers normally reside and work outside the Northwest Territories or Nunavut; and
  • they carry on business in the Northwest Territories or Nunavut for ten or less calendar days per calendar year.

If you do not meet all three of the above criteria you are not a temporary employer and must register.
