Mar. 3, 2011, Yellowknife – Investments by the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency will help four
initiatives that support northern innovation and knowledge to move forward. An investment of $426,000 for research and training projects will
help the Northwest Territories and Nunavut strengthen information technology, energy, and educational sectors of the economy. With additional
contributions from project proponents and the Territorial governments, the
projects have a total value of more than $500,000. The funding will support four projects
in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, one of which involves research into
the potential to use local willow as biomass fuel.
