About us

K.T. Industrial Development Society is a private, non-partisan organization supporting economic development in NW BC for a sustainable future.
K.T. Industrial Development Society (KTIDS) is a group of volunteers interested in supporting economic initiatives in the Kitimat – Terrace valley. The Society is made up of ten (10) volunteer directors, five (5) from Kitimat, four (4) from Terrace and one (1) from Prince Rupert.

KTIDS is here to assist any organization or business in their efforts to bring, and in turn establish, economic opportunities in the Region. We are making every effort to work with groups, throughout the Northwest, as we feel that our “region” is our greatest selling point in a global economy.

Vision Statement

“To assist and promote the development of a diversified, sustainable economy in NW BC”.

KTIDS is striving to build relationships that will encourage positive growth not only in the communities of Kitimat and Terrace but regionally and provincially.
KTIDS works with related business groups, the Chambers of Commerce, Terrace Economic Development Authority, City of Terrace and other economic development groups wherever possible.
