Be A Tourist In Your Own Town

Shop Local. Win Prizes.

How It Works:

Grab a coupon book from any participating business, purchase the products and services listed inside, and enter the ballot on each coupon into the draw box at the business where you made your purchase.

The more places you visit, the more chances you have to win!

Some businesses do not have a physical storefront - these coupons can be entered into the draw box at City Hall.

Coupons are not redeemable for cash and are only valid for use during the Be A Tourist In Your Own Town campaign - April 19 to May 23.

No purchase necessary:

While the intention of the campaign is to encourage local spending, consumers can redeem one coupon per booklet for an entry into the draw without making an eligible purchase.

Important Dates:

The campaign will run from Monday, April 19 until business close on Sunday, May 23.

Coupons will be picked up from businesses on May 25 & 26.

The draw date is May 28. The draw will be live streamed on the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.
