Employee Identification Cards
The employee ID card is a form of photo identification that states you are an employee of the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT). Generally, these are acquired when an employee takes part in their Benefits Documentation Session. Photo ID cards expire five (5) years from the date of issue and you can request a new card if you change Departments. Employee ID cards need to be returned to the Department of Finance – Financial & Employee Shared Services when your existing card expires or upon termination of employment with the GNWT.
