District of Mackenzie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (176 words)
The District of Mackenzie was a former regional administrative district of Canada's Northwest Territories.
The district consisted of the portion of the Northwest Territories directly north of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan on Canada's mainland.
Along with the District of Keewatin and the District of Franklin, it was one of the last remaining districts of the old Northwest Territories before the formation of Nunavut Territory in 1999, at which point it ceased to exist.
