Regional Economic Development Plans

The Regional Economic Development Plans (REDPs) will help identify areas for development and growth of communities across the NWT, as well as weaknesses, where more investment and support will help bolster sectors. These plans involve thorough engagement, with Indigenous Governments and Organizations, regional and industry leaders, and community members across the territory.

A discussion paper has been developed as an aid for engagements with partners and stakeholders. It provides a broad analysis and current data in regions and identifies the strengths and possibilities of each region. The accompanying materials include individual regional profiles with regional data, and an at-a-glance matrix with sectors for development through a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) lens.

The Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) is in the process of holding public engagements. The Have Your Say engagement page will be available with current engagement dates and all materials in both English and French. October engagements will be held in the South Slave and the Dehcho. The North Slave and Tłı̨chǫ region engagements will be held in November, and the final engagements in the Beaufort-Delta and Sahtú will take place in January 2023.

A What We Heard Report will be developed once engagements are complete.
