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. This will be followed up with Tourism 2020, a plan in its final stages of development, which will guide government approaches to the tourism sector for the next five years. 

Please visit the Northwest Territories Tourism website for much more information on all our tourism offerings.
