Consultation has concluded

A strong, diversified economy depends on having healthy businesses grow and by promoting and developing NWT business and investment - especially post-COVID. And our focus as a government is to support the men and women who own and run the small and medium-sized businesses that enrich our lives and empower our communities.

To answer concerns raised by NWT residents, we're looking for your input on two components of the SEED Policy:

  • Equity
  • Market Disruption

About SEED

If you're an entrepreneur or business owner or operator in the NWT, the GNWT’s SEED policy can help you start a business and develop skills or business capacity. SEED funding also supports projects and events in communities that help to expand or grow the economy. There are five programs under the SEED Policy

First launched in September 2008, the Support for Entrepreneurs and Economic Development (SEED) Policy is the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment’s (ITI) flagship program, providing more than $17 million in grants and contributions every year across different sectors in the north. In recent years, ITI has increased the amount of funding available to applicants under the SEED policy.

What’s important to us

As much as possible, government investments should benefit NWT businesses and residents.

We're committed to making changes needed to make sure ITI policies and guidelines are giving the support that NWT businesses need to grow in the post-COVID economic recovery while keeping their unique circumstances in mind.

How will my contribution make a difference?

Any thoughts and observations – and especially experiences and ideas – that you can provide to us through this platform will help us make informed decisions.

This is an opportunity for you to join the NWT-wide conversation – we want you to tell us what matters to you.

Where can I find more information?

How we’re reviewing these policies

By hearing your feedback through ITI's online survey and discussion forum.

We want to highlight that this is a conversation – we want you to tell us what matters to you.
