Yellowknife has an inviting new home for its visitor's centre, located right in the heart of downtown. The centre's grand opening took place in September 2022.

The space highlights aspects of the history of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation and Yellowknife's mining heritage, including a gold-flecked path directing visitors around the centre. The Yellowknives Dene First Nation also provided guidance on incorporating elements of the northern boreal forest into the centre's design. Hints of nature are evident all around the centre with a moss wall and wood elements.

Once inside, visitors can access the tourism information they need about attractions, events, tours and local services. Tourist amenities include a row of tablets set up for visitors to explore online tourism resources and book trips or adventure experiences provided by tourism operators; pamphlets; an aurora simulator; and a professional non-commercial gallery space that highlights the works of northern and Indigenous artists.

CanNor continued with its support for the tourism industry by stepping up to help fund the visitor centre's design and engineering fees, and part of the required renovation work. Overall, the renovation enhanced visitor experiences and ensured accessibility at the Centre Square Mall location in downtown Yellowknife.

The Yellowknife Visitor Centre is a tourist hub and a starting point for visitors exploring Yellowknife, the North Slave region, and the rest of NWT.
