The City of Yellowknife strongly supports welcoming a university presence in our community.

A university presence in Yellowknife will yield economic benefits, as well as positive academic and social impacts, for Yellowknife and for residents across the NWT. The benefits and spin-offs associated with developing Yellowknife into a world-renowned knowledge centre are considerable, including the ability to attract students, academics and researchers from the rest of Canada, as well as internationally.
