www.gov.nt.ca Poten al, partnerships and progress Caroline Wawzonek Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment Canada's Northwest Territories is blessed with an extraordinary wealth of resources. Our geology is one of the richest in the world; and a storehouse for critical, technology metals which will help realize a sustainable, carbon-reduced economy. Mining is empowering and shaping our future - with capacity building, education, training, business opportunities' and jobs. Development corporations and joint ventures have taken root and grown, thanks to the foresight and investments of Indigenous governments, Northern and Indigenous-owned companies. Partnerships between the NWT's Indigenous and public governments and industry players are striving to set a new bar in Canada, of meaningful Indigenous participation, decision making and resource revenue sharing. As we look past the COVID-19 pandemic to the resumption of our rich mining story, our government is committed to further growing the NWT's mining sector and its contributions to investment, employment, and Indigenous participation in the economy. We've laid the groundwork for our residents to work with investors and resource companies. We're putting new legislation in place that is more in line with our priorities and today's streamlined and socially responsible practices. We're investing in energy and transportation infrastructure and pursuing new and relevant geoscience. We are a politically stable, secure jurisdiction poised with the resources to power the clean economy of the future. You can invest in resources anywhere. But if you want the assurance of a territory where your investment will empower a people and inspire a future... come invest in the NWT.
