YELLOWKNIFE (November 13, 2014) – Northwest Territories businesses and entrepreneurs can use a new online database to obtain information on a variety of funding programs and services from the Government of the Northwest Territories and other governments and agencies. Increased awareness of available financial programs is expected to help NWT businesses to better access financial support.
“This new database is the first step of many the Government of the Northwest Territories will take this year to strengthen government programs and services for NWT businesses and entrepreneurs,” said Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment David Ramsay. “These are important programs that are helping to support our business community, and we are pleased to offer businesses and entrepreneurs a valuable tool to learn more about them.”
The database, recommended in the NWT Economic Opportunities Strategy, allows users to search funding options by agency or by sector. The InvestNWT.com website also links NWT businesses and potential investors with key economic information about the NWT, sector profiles and statistical data and analysis.
The ongoing implementation of the NWT Economic Opportunities Strategy contributes to achieving the 17th Legislative Assembly’s priority of strengthening and diversifying the NWT’s economy.
