The Northwest Territories has five courts which operate independently from the federal and territorial governments, enabling judges to make fair decisions. All cases are heard within the Northwest Territories, but can eventually be referred to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Contacting the registry

The court registry is operated by the Department of Justice, and is the public office of the courts taking care of day-to-day filings and business activities, so that judges can focus on hearing cases.
