Advancing Local Government Administrators Program

The Advancing Local Government Administrator Program (ALGAP) is intended to increase the human resources capacity of community governments through leadership development and training. Developed in partnership with the Northwest Territories Association of Communities (NWTAC), the Local Government  Administrators of the NWT (LGANT), and the Department of Human Resources, the Department of Municipal and Community Affairs (MACA) provides financial support to assist community governments to recruit, develop, and retain NWT residents for Local Government Administration (LGA) positions. 

The purpose of the program is to:

  • assist community governments with recruiting local people into senior community government administration roles;
  • provide meaningful and practical training and development opportunities to individuals sponsored by a community council and interested in becoming a LGA; and
  • develop a “pool” of qualified LGAs in the Northwest Territories.

Program Categories
ALGAP has three funding categories: Investing Locally, Succession Planning and Skill Builder. All applications should fit in one of these categories.

The ALGAP Program guidelines are currently under review and will be posted as soon as they become available.
