Members' Handbook

The Members’ Handbook was adopted by the Board of Management as the official record of Board policy and, as such, is provided to all Members of the Legislative Assembly to guide them in the performance of their duties and the fulfillment of their responsibilities as elected representatives in the Northwest Territories Legislative Assembly. By working within the framework provided by the Handbook, Members may be confident that they are acting with respect for the Legislative Assembly, their constituents and their fellow Members.

In addition to Board policy, the Handbook references certain statutory and regulatory requirements and the Rules of the Legislative Assembly. These documents also govern aspects of a Member’s duties and copies of the relevant legislation, regulations and the Rules will also be provided to Members for further reference.

The Handbook has been designed for ease of use and the web-based format will allow amendments and updates to be easily accommodated.


Members should feel free to contact the Clerk of Legislative Assembly or the appropriate staff members with any questions regarding the Handbook.

Policy Updates


The Members’ Handbook policies are subject to amendment and updating as required. As policy amendments and updates are adopted by the Board of Management they will be updated on the web-based format and the PDF format and all users of the handbook will be notified.
