Are you a commercial farmer, fisher or wild harvester looking for support for your NWT business?

The Northern Food Development Program (NFDP) was created in 2013 to offer support across all food production sectors including farming, fishing, wild harvesting, and non-timber forest products.

The overall goal of the program is to increase local food production and the availability of northern food products for northern consumers.

  • Are you looking to purchase boats, motors and nets for your fishing business?
  • Do you need support to expand your commercial facilities (greenhouses, storage and processing facilities, etc.)?
  • Would assistance with installing alternate energy technology improve your production?

This fund can help!

The NFDP can also support inter-settlement trade, harvesters rebates, marketing, land development, specialized training and more.

To apply, fill in an application form available online or get one from your regional Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) office.

There is no deadline to apply, but we recommend submitting your application as early as you can to make sure you have time for a productive season!
