EDMONTON – The Government of Alberta and the Northwest Territories have signed an agreement to collaborate on economic corridor projects.

The Memorandum of Understanding agreement includes working to enhance critical infrastructure and improve efficiency of interjurisdictional transportation networks, a release said, and focuses on reducing red tape and regulatory hurdles for commercial vehicles travelling between Alberta and the Northwest Territories.

The agreement will also involve partnering on enhancing road and bridge networks to support the movement of both jurisdictions’ resources and will identify opportunities to attract private sector investment and partner with Indigenous communities on economic corridor development, the release said.

Alberta’s government has also partnered with the governments of Saskatchewan and Manitoba on a separate Memorandum of Understanding to advance economic corridors between the three provinces, the release added.
