Strategic Plan - 2023-2026
In early 2019 the NWT Chamber updated its Strategic Plan for the period 2019-2022. In the time since that Plan was adopted and initially implemented the Northwest Territories and every province and territory in Canada have been forced to contend with a global pandemic.
A new Plan is required to set a course for the post-COVID-19 NWT economy. The NWT Chamber can assist its membership in achieving their objectives by being a major voice from a representative and reasoned foundation. The Facilitator's Report was presented to the Board at the March 15 Regular Meeting. It will now go to the new Board selected at the April 15 AGM for consideration and action. Target for completion: Summer 2023.
