Resources

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.

EMERGENCY CONTACTS

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.

SHELTERS

For a listing of transition houses and family violence shelters in the NWT, visit the Healing Journey's website.

LEGAL AID COMMISSION

The Legal Aid Outreach Clinic provides services on a full-time basis to the public, and is a good first step if you have legal concerns. There is no financial means test.  In Yellowknife, the Outreach Clinic holds three weekly clinics: one for child protection, one for family law, and one general clinic for other civil matters. Here is a link to Outreach Clinic information.

Here is a link to the weekly calendar and contact telephone numbers for the Legal Aid Outreach Clinic.
