The legislature then began electing a cabinet and Government Leader later known as the Premier. The Commissioner had full governmental powers until 1980 when the territories were given greater self government. The head of state for the territories is a Commissioner appointed by the federal government. The territory's most recent general election was on November 24, 2003.

This group is composed of one member elected from each of the nineteen constituencies. It is a consensus government called the Legislative Assembly.
Unlike provincial governments, the Government of Northwest Territories does not have political parties, except for the period between 1898 and 1905. Unlike lieutenant-governors, the commissioner is not a formal representative of the Queen of Canada. Since 1985 the Commissioner no longer chairs meetings of the Executive Council (or cabinet) and the federal government has instructed commissioners to behave like a provincial lieutenant-governor. The position used to be more administrative and governmental but with the devolution of more and more powers to the elected assembly since 1967 the position has become symbolic.
The Commissioner of NWT is the chief executive and is appointed by the federal Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development.

  In Inuktitut, Northwest Territories are referred to as ᓄᓇᑦᓯᐊᖅ (Nunatsiaq), "beautiful land.". This name arguably became more appropriate following division, than it was when the territory extended far into Canada's northeast. The idea is favoured by former premier Stephen Kakfwi among others, but a poll conducted prior to division showed strong support for retaining the name "Northwest Territories". One proposal is "Denendeh" ("our land" in Dene).
There was some discussion of changing the name of Northwest Territories after the separation of Nunavut, possibly to a term from an Aboriginal language. Finally, on April 1, 1999, the eastern three-fifths of Northwest Territories (including all of Keewatin district and much of Mackenzie and Franklin) became a separate territory called Nunavut. Between 1925 and 1999, the Northwest Territories measured 3 439 296 km² – larger than India. In 1912 the Government of Canada dropped the hyphen in North-West Territories name to Northwest Territories.
However, in 1925 the boundaries of the NWT were extended all the way to the North Pole on the sector principle, vastly expanding its territory onto the northern ice cap. This left only the districts of Mackenzie, Franklin (which absorbed the remnants of Ungava in 1920), and Keewatin. The provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan were created in 1905, and Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec acquired the last of their modern territories from the NWT in 1912. Quebec was also extended, in 1898, and Yukon was made a separate territory in the same year to deal with the Klondike Gold Rush, and remove the NWT government from administering the sudden boom of population, economic activity and influx of non-Canadians.
In the meantime, Ontario was enlarged northwestward in 1882. See also: Districts of Northwest Territories. Keewatin would be returned to NWT in 1905. In 1882 and again in 1896, the remaining portion was divided into the following districts (corresponding to the following modern-day areas):.
In 1876, the District of Keewatin, at the centre of the territory, was separated from it. In 1882 Regina in the then-District of Assiniboia became the territorial capital; after Alberta and Saskatchewan became provinces in 1905 Regina became the provincial capital of the new province of Saskatchewan. By the time British Columbia joined confederation in 1871, it had already been granted the portion of the North-Western Territory south of 60 degrees north and west of 120 degrees west. The province of Manitoba was created in 1870, a tiny square around Winnipeg, and then enlarged in 1881 to a square region composing the modern province's south.
After the transfer, the territories were gradually whittled away. The name of the territory is traced to North-Western Territory, a region named for the geographical location relative to Rupert's Land. It also excluded the Arctic Islands except the southern half of Baffin Island; these remained under direct British rule until 1880. This immense region comprised all of modern Canada except British Columbia, the coast of the Great Lakes, the Saint Lawrence River valley and the southern third of Quebec, the Maritimes, Newfoundland, and the Labrador coast.
The territory was created in 1870, when the Hudson's Bay Company transferred Rupert's Land and North-Western Territory to the government of Canada – forming the Northwest Territories. They decided that if French was to be an official language, then so must the other languages in the territories. The executive council appointed a special committee of MLAs to study the matter. Some native members walked out of the assembly, protesting that they would not be permitted to speak their own language.
In the early 1980s, the government of Northwest Territories was again under pressure by the federal government to reintroduce French as an official language. After some conflict with Ottawa and a decisive vote on January 19, 1892, the issue was put to rest as an English-only territory. The members voted on more than one occasion to nullify and make English the only language used in the assembly. Governor Joseph Royal.
