The mandate of the Minister and the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) is to promote economic self-sufficiency through funding, support, and marketing initiatives designed to foster a positive economic environment in our territory.
The Department is divided into program divisions structured under two directional priorities—Economic Development and Mines and Petroleum Resources.
Three additional Divisions support the divisions and regional offices of the Department in areas of policy, legislation, communications, finance, administration and technical services. These integral functions ensure ITI’s initiatives are well-planned and implemented.
Regional offices in Yellowknife (North Slave), Fort Smith (South Slave), Norman Wells (Sahtu), Fort Simpson (Dehcho) and Inuvik (Beaufort Delta) support the Department’s regional delivery model and ensure program support and assistance is available in every community in the Northwest Territories.
