1997

The Conseil scolaire francophone des Territoires du Nord-Ouest is established

The Commission scolaire francophone des Territoires du Nord-Ouest (formerly the Conseil scolaire francophone des Territoires du Nord-Ouest) is the only school board in the Northwest Territories to provide the French as a first language program.

In 1997, the Conseil scolaire francophone was created under the authority of Yellowknife Education District No. 1.

In 2000, the Conseil became the Commission scolaire francophone des Territoires du Nord‑Ouest (CSFTNO), which runs independently and fully manages its schools. The CSFTNO is the only school board in the Northwest Territories to provide the French as a first language program.
