Scope and content

The collection is comprised of photographs that were deleted from the files up to early 1990. Themes include involvement of the Government of the Northwest Territories in housing, education and training, arts and crafts, tourism, transportation and industry. Also included are images documenting native land use, community activities, facilities, special events and people. Commissioners and the Council are particularly well documented, especially during the earlier period. Also extensively represented are Expo '86 and the Arctic Winter Games. Most were photographed by the Government Photographer, Audio Visual section, although some were purchased or acquired from other sources. Photographers include Mike Van Duffelen, Bob Wilson and Tessa Macintosh.
