The Community Tourism Infrastructure Contribution Program provides funding to community governments and non-government organizations to support new and innovative tourism infrastructure projects in and around their communities.
The goals of the Program are to: increase the attractiveness of NWT communities to visitors; encourage partnerships between non-government organizations and private industry in the tourism sector; increase the use of communications technology in tourism products; and create opportunities for the local economy and residents through the enhancement of tourism operations at the community level.
Applications for funding will be accepted for funding in the following areas:
1. Capital projects that increase tourism in communities.
2. Communications infrastructure projects that enhance current tourism products or attractions.
3. The development of innovative information technology tourism products or service.
4. Planning studies or site development for future capital projects (if it can be demonstrated that future resources are available for project completion.)
