About the right from the start Program

New research shows the links between a child’s first years and its chance of success later in life are even greater than previously thought. That’s why the Government of the Northwest Territories is committed to making sure every child gets the right start towards a bright future.This website is just part of what the GNWT is doing to share information with parents, grandparents, caregivers and anyone else shaping a child’s early development.

Here you’ll find research from a variety of sources, as well as links to some of the GNWT’s current Early Childhood Development programs.Other relevant materials and tools for parents and caregivers are also being developed and will be distributed both in person and online.

Along with this website, there is also an NWT Right From The Start Facebook page where parents and caregivers from across the NWT can share stories, opinions and information.
