Passport Campaign: How It Works
To participate, register your business with the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce: Contact Admin@YKChamber.com or 867-920-4944.
A registration fee of $100 for Chamber members and $200 for Non-members is required to participate.
We provide the passport booklets and stamps. Delivery will be on October 17th and 18th, 2019.
For every $20 patrons spend in your business, you give them a stamp on their passport. Customers may receive 1 stamp without purchase.
Once 30 stamps are collected, consumers can enter their passport into a draw box at any participating business for a chance to win a $3,000 cash prize, to be spent locally.
Participating businesses must provide a draw box where patrons can drop off completed passports. If a business is unable to provide a drop box, patrons should be directed to City Hall. The Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce will pick up passports on December 3rd, 4th and 5th.
