We recognize that our transportation partners that supply essential services to our communities are also directly impacted by the travel restrictions that we have put in place. We have reduced the fees that are charged to businesses supporting the supply chain until – at least - the end of June 2020. This includes tolls on the Deh Cho Bridge, truck permits and Airport Landing Fees.
We have also waived leases, licenses and concession fees from April 1st until the end of June for all businesses operating at NWT airports. This has provided immediate financial relief for businesses operating at all 27 NWT airports, including businesses from the aviation, logistics, and other industrial sectors.
We continue to advocate for federal supports and initiatives that will serve to maintain and protect our territory’s supply chain.
