Am I eligible for compensation benefits if I get hurt working outside of the Northwest Territories or Nunavut?

Yes.

If you’re working for a company operating in the Northwest Territories or Nunavut and they send you to work outside of either territory for a period less than six months, you can apply for compensation benefits.

Depending on the territory or province where the incident takes place, you can choose to claim compensation under that territory or province, or in the Northwest Territories or Nunavut. This is called the Right of Election.
