Vision, Mission and Values


A stronger Alberta through a stronger north.


The NADC’s mission is to identify and implement sustainable measures that will advance northern development and advise government on opportunities and issues for the benefit of Albertans.


We understand that true success can only be achieved by working together.

We believe that being prepared for tomorrow means making strategic investments in education, innovation and technology today.

We appreciate the fine balance between promoting economic development and maintaining quality of life.

We value the many new people and new ideas that are shaping the future of our region, and also honour the Aboriginal communities and pioneers that established our region’s strong foundation.
