Office of the Commissioner of the Northwest Territories


Welcome to my website.  It is a great honour to serve as the Commissioner of the Northwest Territories since May 28, 2010.

Having served the public in my former capacity in public broadcasting, I have gained an extensive knowledge of the people, cultures, and economy of the north.  I am sure this knowledge will be put to good use in my work as Commissioner.

Visiting our communities and being among the people is very important to me, and I hope to travel extensively throughout the NWT, and to attend as many cultural events and school graduations as possible, and to speak to people about the importance of healing and personal well being.

Each of my predecessors has put his or her personal mark on the Office of the Commissioner, and I will strive to carry on their good work.  I am very proud and honoured to represent the people of the Northwest Territories.

George L. Tuccaro
