The NWT Cultural Places Program promotes the protection, investigation, interpretation, and commemoration of significant cultural places in the Northwest Territories. It achieves these goals by providing programs to document, manage and protect archaeological sites, by administering official community and geographic names, and by commemorating significant cultural and historic places.

The GNWT has just released its new Science Agenda establishing a series of research priorities, many of which address aspects of the PWNHC mandate and program delivery.
