Ordinances of the Northwest Territories (Tip of the Week)

Posted on

nwtordBy Alan Kilpatrick

Saskatchewan, or the area that now makes up Saskatchewan, was part of the Northwest Territories before it became a province.  The Ordinances of the Northwest Territories helped form Saskatchewan’s laws when the province was created in 1905.  Where can you locate these Ordinances?

The Law Society of Saskatchewan Library carries a complete print set of the Ordinances of the Northwest Territories.  Additionally, the Alberta Heritage Digitization Project has scanned and digitized all of the Ordinances from 1877 to 1905 and made them freely available on their website.  They can be found online at: http://www.ourfutureourpast.ca/law/browse.aspx.

It can be difficult to trace particular sections of the Ordinances.  If you require any assistance researching the Ordinances, please contact a Law Society Librarian.
