Statement of Gratitude
You have all heard by now how the global tourism industry has been devastated by the pandemic. During our darkest hour of disappointment at having our 2020 northern canoeing season fully cancelled, we were provided with significant financial support from the Government of the Northwest Territories, Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment, to purchase critical canoeing and rafting gear and equipment and to support renovations at our Lodge to better position Canoe North Adventures for a dynamic recovery in a post-pandemic world. Specifically, the canoe and raft equipment will support our new operations in Nahanni National Park Reserve. We also received critical funding from the federal Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (Cannor) to support operating costs incurred at our Head Office from April 2020 to March 2021. We are grateful to have received these two streams of financial support and would like to thank our colleagues at GNWT-ITI and at Cannor who facilitated the funding programs. We would also like to thank our industry partners at Northwest Territories Tourism who kept us fully informed about funding opportunities, the changing covid-19 landscape and provided regular updates from Destination Canada, our National Tourism Council.
