Administration of the Territorial Lands Act System (ATLAS)

The Administration of the Territorial Lands Act System (ATLAS) provides accurate mapping of each parcel of land in the Northwest Territories. 

ATLAS Highlights:

  • Uses geographic information systems (GIS) to maintain and enhance access to parcel and land information.
  • Displays real-time information about who administers the land and details of active interests on both Territorial and Commissioner's Land. 
  • Parcel mapping is further enhanced with large-scale topographical base mapping and high-resolution photography to support the effective management of land. 

Visit ATLAS to access the online mapping system.

The Department of Lands also issues leases on Territorial and Commissioner's Land. All lease applications undergo the Department's standard lease application and review process, which includes consultation.
