The Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN) and the City of Yellowknife (the City) are developing a Joint Economic Development Strategy and need your input!

The purpose of the Strategy is to support the communities of Yellowknife, Dettah and Ndilo in their efforts to maximize future economic growth and prosperity, to develop this partnership for future collaboration, and to benefit the residents of these communities. This strategy will acknowledge the short-term economic challenges of COVID-19, as well as discuss our prosperous shared future.

YKDFN and the City are seeking business and community input during this process through four workshops. The workshops will explore economic and business opportunities for the communities. Three workshops will target specific members of the business and business stakeholder community, and one will be open to the public at large. Workshop details are below:

•            Tourism Workshop: Tuesday, July 7, 1 - 3 p.m., on Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84251788531;
