The Department of Lands is waiving lease rents for the 2020-21 fiscal year. For clarity, the Department is not just postponing collection of the lease rent to a later date, it is not going to collect it at all for the 2020-21 fiscal year. It is a one-time lease rent exemption.
Regular rent collection will resume on April 1st 2021. If you have any questions about the rent relief and whether it applies to you, please contact Ms. Rebecca Whalen, Administrative Assistant at Rebecca_whalen@gov.nt.ca or call 1-855-NWT-LAND.
