See the info below from GNWT regarding applications for the Youth Ambassadors Program. The deadline to apply is September 25, 2015. But don’t wait! this excellent, popular program has only so many spaces.
The Department of Municipal and Community Affairs is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 Northwest Territories (NWT) Youth Ambassador Program. The program provides NWT youth with opportunities to build leadership skills through participation at special events and volunteer assignments. In the past, NWT Youth Ambassadors have attended the Arctic Winter Games, Canada Winter Games, Canada Summer Games and the North American Indigenous Games.
Applicants are selected based on community involvement, commitment to a healthy lifestyle and a personal reflection on how the Youth Ambassador Program will help them in the future. To qualify for the program, youth must be between 16 and 24 years of age on December 31, 2015. The deadline to apply is September 25, 2015. All NWT youth who qualify are encouraged to apply.

Deadline for 2015 nominations is June 30th, 2015!
At the risk of being accused of bias, I am circulating the message below from Northlands Utilities – FYI.
As you know, Northland Utilities provides electricity services, including billing, to more than 11,000 customers in the Northwest Territories. In response to customer questions, Northland Utilities has put together a short, simple video explaining electricity bills, Shedding Light on Your Electricity Bill.
Our industry can be confusing and lengthy explanations often frustrate rather than inform. Our goal is to keep it simple and provide clear, consistent information on how different electricity services come together on the bill. This video was launched on our website today along with other consumer information.
Electricity is essential to day-to-day living and economic growth, and we are committed to operating efficiently and delivering reliable service. We also recognize the importance of providing useful information to our customers.
You can call me at 873-4804 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
