This program will be of interest to entrepreneurs and/or owner/operators of businesses who want to immigrate to the NWT and establish business operations in the NWT. All economic sectors are eligible for this program.
Business projects will be considered a priority if they involve a product that is new to the NWT or if the product would generate significant benefits to the north. The market disruption impact of proposed business will be considered as part of the Business Plan analysis.
A business plan is required. The applicant’s business plan may involve a new business start-up or the purchase of an existing business. It could also involve investment as an active management partner in an existing business. The business plan must clearly detail the incremental benefits that will accrue to the NWT.
