Prime Minister Stephen Harper is scheduled to visit Hay River, N.W.T. next week.

The Western Arctic Conservative Electoral District Association posted an invitation on its website Tuesday that the Prime Minister will attend.

"Our special guest for the event will be The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada," the invitation reads.

Some people in the community also received invitations by email. "I think it's important and I think we may have the opportunity … to interact with people that are connected to the Prime Minister and we'll take the opportunity to do so," local Conservative Party member Kevin Wallington told CBC News 

The Prime Minister makes an annual trip to Canada's North every August. The event will happen Tuesday, Aug. 20th at the Hay River Golf Club and will cost $25 to attend.
