    NWT Candidates Forum - Yellowknife
    Together with the NWT & NU Chamber of Mines the NWT Chamber of Commerce will be hosting our territorial candidate’s forum at Northern United Place between Tuesday, September 10 - Thursday, September 12 from 6-10 each night. We will be hosting all 7 Yellowknife ridings as well as Monfwi and Tu Nedhé-Wiilideh.  Our joint committee has prepared 3 questions to be answered/discussed at the forum.  We also ask that the answers be provided in writing no later than Monday, September 16 so that all answers can be published and distributed. Dates for all candidate forums in conjunction with our Community Chambers will be posted as they are committed to.
    Both the NWT Chamber of Commerce and NWT & NU Chamber of Mines sent out a survey to our collective memberships of 500+ businesses and/or individuals asking them: “The NWT is about to enter into two pivotal elections in October and we want to make sure that we are putting the most pressing business related issues to all Territorial and Federal candidates. Below please rank in order of importance to you and/or your business…” The top 5 issues were Red Tape/Barriers to Entry; Cost of Living; Over Regulation; Mineral Industry and Housing.
