Northwest Territories (NWT) businesses can now apply to the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI)’s Support for Entrepreneurs and Economic Development (SEED) Program for funding to get their financial books in order.
For the first time in 15 years, the Great Slave Lake Winter Fishery opened yesterday.
It is anticipated that seven commercial fishing businesses will participate in this year’s winter fishery. They will be supported by a pilot program introduced by the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI).
The Growth and Recovery by Investing in Tourism (GRIT) Fund will see approximately $3 million invested in the tourism industry in the NWT to help operators and businesses recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
