The Law Society of the Northwest Territories is the governing body for all lawyers in the NWT. Its mandate is to ensure the public is well-served by a legal profession that is independent, responsible and responsive.
The Canadian Bankers Association (“CBA”) has provided us with an updated list of bank officials to contact in the case of delays in the discharge of mortgages. The CBA has requested that it be made available to lawyers immediately. Click here for the document.
