The Power to Shape Policy
Industry-specific organizations work on those issues pertaining to that sector and we often collaborate with them. The NWT Chamber of Commerce represents the interests of all businesses in the NWT, speaking to the economic impacts of government policy and the need for change. Our recent advocacy initiatives include the GNWT’s Economic Development and Mineral Strategies, the National Energy Board and the Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Northern Affairs. We meet regularly with Cabinet Ministers and senior bureaucrats to ensure business interests are understood. And through our membership in the Canadian Chamber of Commerce we get NWT business and economic interests on the national agenda. If you have an interest in helping us shape public policy we want to hear from you. Call Mike Bradshaw, Executive Director, at 867-920-9505.
