The annual funding deadline for two exciting tourism programs is quickly approaching.

Applicants have until December 9, 2019 to apply for the Community Tourism Infrastructure Contribution (CTIC) and the Tourism Product Diversification and Marketing Program (TPDMP).   

CTIC provides funding to community governments and non-government organizations to support new and innovative tourism infrastructure projects in and around their communities.  Apply for the Community Tourism Infrastructure Contribution.

TPDMP can help re-invent, improve or expand NWT tourism products and operations to meet future marketing demands by providing funding for business planning, product development and packaging as well as marketing.  Apply for the Tourism Product Diversification and Marketing Program.
