Strategic Outcome 1

Developed and diversified territorial economies that support prosperity for all Northerners.

Program 1.1 — Economic Development

The program supports economic development in Canada's three territories: Nunavut, Northwest Territories, and Yukon. Ensuring that the North is able to participate actively in the economy is essential to Canada's economic growth. Each territory has unique opportunities and challenges that require individual strategies to foster a sustainable, competitive and diverse economic development. Through funding support, the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor) strengthens and stimulates the northern economy by taking steps to advance private sector efforts, ranging from small and medium enterprises to large‑scale industry. There is also a strong focus on creating the conditions to position individuals, including Aboriginal and non‑Aboriginal northerners, communities, and business‑related organizations for economic success.

Program 1.2 — Policy and Alignment

This program supports research and analysis to guide programming and policy choices, the promotion of northern interests both inside and outside of the federal government, and the development of horizontal strategies, initiatives and projects to address economic development challenges and opportunities in the North.

Strategic Outcome 2

The following program supports all strategic outcomes within this organization.

Program 2.1 — Internal services

The Internal services program supports all strategic outcomes and is common across government. Internal services are groups of related activities and resources that are administered to support the needs of programs and other corporate obligations of an organization. These groups are: Management and oversight services; Communications services; Legal services; Human resources management services; Financial management services; Information management services; Information technology services; Real property services; Materiel services; Acquisition services; and Travel and Other administrative services. Internal services include only those activities and resources that apply across an organization and not to those provided specifically to a program.
