Northwest Territories Tourism (NWT Tourism) is a not-for-profit destination marketing organization (DMO) tasked with marketing NWT tourism products. Our mission is to increase the number of visitors and visitor spending in the NWT. NWT Tourism was established in 1996 when it assumed responsibility for tourism marketing from the Government of the Northwest Territories’ (GNWT) department of Industry Tourism and Investment (ITI). The current organization is the latest in a line of tourism industry organizations that trace back over 50 years. A voluntary Board of Directors made up of tourism operators and government officials governs NWTT.
