Prior to the 2011 census, there were two census divisions. Note: the former census division of Inuvik was considerably larger than the administrative region of the same name.

Before 1999

Prior to the division of the NWT and the creation of Nunavut in 1999, there were five census divisions. Their boundaries were altered somewhat as part of the adjustment.

These regions are not to be confused with the former districts of the Northwest Territories.
