Past public engagements
The Department of Justice engaged external stakeholders regarding potential areas for change in replacing the Mechanics Lien Act. An engagement paper on A Proposed Builders Lien Act for the Northwest Territories was emailed to NWT stakeholders, municipalities, the legal community, the financial services industry, the construction industry, other GNWT departments, and posted on the Department’s webpage in June 2020. The deadline for submission of comments was extended from August 4, 2020 to September 30, 2020 to allow sufficient time for more substantive feedback.
Responses have been incorporated into the document "Highlights of What We Heard". If you have any questions about the review or the summary document, please contact the Land Titles Office:
The Department of Justice completed a comprehensive review of the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act to address issues identified by the Government of the Northwest Territories, the Information and Privacy Commissioner and other stakeholders.
Earlier this year we asked stakeholders, including members of the public, to provide their views and feedback on these issues, as well as any additional issues they would like to identify or any comments they would like to make.
