Happy New Year from the Travel Nunavut team and Board of Directors!

We know it has been a tough year for everyone and also a tough year for tourism and we hope that this year things can start going back to normal. We have some new exciting opportunities this year and we can’t wait to work with you all again!


The Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for new single or multi-year projects starting in the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

You can read more about this here.

All EOIs must be submitted to CanNor via email at cannor.operations.cannor@canada.ca by 11:59PM Pacific Time on February 5, 2021, using the EOI Form and EOI Guide.

If you haven’t already applied for funding through CanNor’s Northern Business Relief Fund, you still have time! In recognition of the continuing impacts of COVID-19 on Tourism and related industries in the territories, CanNor is offering to extend financial support beyond July 31, 2020, to current eligible recipients of the NBRF program. The funding extension is based on demonstrated need and would provide funding up to a maximum of $100,000 or up to March 31, 2021, whichever comes first.

You can find further information here.
