The Yellowknife Visitors’ Centre has not had the best of luck in recent past.
Starting June 1st, that luck is looking to change.
Two weeks removed from being ushered out of their previous building, the Northern Frontier Visitors Association is looking to have their own centre set up shop at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre. The move will be on a temporary basis through the government of the Northwest Territories.
In a statement issued last week, Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment Wally Schumann said the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment will cover costs associated with the Association’s move to the new location.
“As promised, the Government of the Northwest Territories has been working in partnership with the City Of Yellowknife and the NFVA to respond to the closure of the Northern Frontier Visitors’ Centre. With this resolution, we will now turn our collective attention to finding a longer-term solution.”
