Prospective and current business owners in the North Slave Region have the opportunity to take part in Small Businesses Workshops this month, made possible by the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI).

Covering topics gathered during community visits and assessments, the workshop is designed to help NWT residents build the capacity they need to manage, operate and grow their businesses. New, existing and aspiring business owners are all encouraged to attend the workshops.

The workshops are aimed at helping existing and start-up businesses obtain an  understanding of small business basics including developing business plans. Ultimately, participants will learn how to raise money, avoid common mistakes, develop a healthy balance sheet, maximize business and more.

The workshops are sponsored by the GNWT’s Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment and delivered by Crowe-McKay LLP.. Crowe-McKay, an international organization with an office in Yellowknife, provides a range of financial services to a diverse array of businesses.

These workshops are one way the GNWT is advancing the objectives of the Economic Opportunities Strategy, which highlights the importance of strengthening the operating environment for regional businesses and entrepreneurs - especially in the NWT’s small market communities.
