Submissions can continue to be made by mail, or through arrangements with Land Titles staff by calling 867-767-9302. Delays in service times can be expected. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Fees will apply to view or download a copy of a certificate title, plan of survey, instrument, caveat or other document or to conduct a Writ Book and General Register search. These fees are prescribed by the Land Titles Tariffs of Fees Regulations.
To use the Northwest Territories Land Titles System, you must register an account with a VISA or Mastercard to pre-authorize funds from which applicable fees will be deducted. The pre-authorized amount is immediately applied against a credit limit, however, the card will only be charged for the amount that is actually used.
