Member Update on COVID-19

Dear Members of NWT Tourism,

Below is a link to a Public Health Advisory, just issued by the Government of the Northwest Territories a few minutes ago. It is very important you read this advisory.

We acknowledge that this advisory creates more uncertainty in our industry. Many visitors that you planned to host, NWT residents and so many others are affected by this pandemic.

Our staff are assessing what steps they need to take to adjust planned activities so we are appropriately responding to all travel and event advisories and to public health advisories and where there are marketing programs that involve members, we ask for your patience as we work through our response to this situation.

Our Chairman wrote earlier this afternoon to Minister Joly who is the federal minister responsible for tourism.  He has highlighted the impact this pandemic will have on our industry and he has outlined the steps we need the federal government to take to help us all weather this storm.

We will keep you updated as new information becomes available, but please read the new NWT Public Heath Advisory.  The link is attached here.
