  • Post-Secondary Education in the NWT

  • The Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce has taken the formal position that post-secondary transformation in the NWT is needed and that the head office of any post-secondary institution should be based in Yellowknife. However, we do believe that there is an important role for the Fort Smith and Inuvik campuses, and we support the City’s position that they are “well positioned to focus on specialized programming and their continued role is important to move ahead successfully".
