Tourism

Tourism is an important part of the Northwest Territories economy and ITI works in partnership with NWT Tourism to promote the NWT as a "spectacular" world-class tourist destination.

ITI also provides resources and support to the tourism industry in the NWT for marketing, Aboriginal tourism, community and industry engagement, infrastructure, skills development, and research and planning. 

The GNWT’s investments and initiatives under the Tourism 2015: New Directions for a Spectacular Future plan were successful, building the tourism sector to a $146.6 million industry for the territory.

Tourism 2020: Opening our Spectacular Home to the World is the latest guiding investment strategy launched in Fall 2016. The strategy's overarching goal is to build the industry beyond $207 million by 2020.
