The Law Society does not employ lawyers at its office, and therefore cannot provide legal services or advice. For legal assistance, please contact a lawyer. You may find a lawyer using our Lawyer Referral Service.
Throughout the Northwest Territories, police can be called by using a local phone extension (the first three digits of a phone number) and 1111. For fire or medical emergencies, use any local extension plus 2222. In Yellowknife, for example, emergency numbers are 873-1111 for police and 873-2222 for fire/medical emergencies.
For a complete list of emergency numbers, see the GNWT Municipal and Community Affairs site.
