Court Registries

Court registries are open to the public and offer many services in support of court proceedings for all levels of courts in the Northwest Territories.

Court registries keep all of the files related to court proceedings. Documents to be filed in support of your court matter must be in compliance with the rules of court and/or the legislation relevant to your case.

Registry staff will review and file all documents and can provide information on procedural matters. Registry staff cannot provide legal advice.

Services provided include accepting fine and restitution payments, document filing, and providing certified copies of court orders. Searches of court files and judgments may also be made at a court registry. Please note that some files are restricted by statute or order and there may be a fee for services.

If you live in a community where you do not have access to a court registry, call toll-free to the registry nearest you.
