List of Canadian territorial senators

This is a list of past and present Canadian senators from the territories of Yukon, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories.

The territories are currently represented by one senator each.

The Northwest Territories was granted two Senate seats in 1879 and doubled to four seats in 1903. After Alberta and Saskatchewan were created in 1905, the territories would not have Senate representation until the Constitution Act of 1975 that gave one seat to the Northwest Territories and one seat to the Yukon.

Nunavut would be granted one seat in the Nunavut Act of 1993.
