Economic Development Strategy
The City of Yellowknife is committed to engaging our residents and businesses in growing and developing our community.
We support partnerships and initiatives that contribute to a diverse and vibrant local and regional economy, draw investment to Yellowknife and the NWT, and encourage new business and residents to join our growing and prosperous community. We enjoy working with local creative people and welcome your involvement in helping the City communicate better and enhancing our local economy.
The Economic Development Strategy is the result of learning from the past, using the knowledge of today and developing a vision for the future. This vision sees Yellowknife as a city open for business, a diverse business community, a dynamic, growing community and a talented and educated community.
