In 1876, the District of Keewatin, at the centre of the territory, was separated from it.
Quebec was also extended, in 1898, and Yukon was made a separate territory in the same year to deal with the Klondike Gold Rush, and remove the NWT government from administering the sudden boom of population, economic activity and influx of non-Canadians.
The Commissioner of NWT is the chief executive and is appointed by the federal Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development.
