Located on the shores of Frame Lake, the Legislative Assembly is where Members from across the Northwest Territories come together and make decisions on behalf of all Northerners.
During your hour-long tour you will see one of the newest legislatures in Canada and learn about the unique system of consensus government that sets the Northwest Territories apart.
Tours begin in the Great Hall, just off the main entrance. Simply let the security guards know you are here for a tour.
The Legislative Assembly is fully wheelchair accessible and has public washrooms, telephones and a cafeteria which makes a great stop either before or after a tour for lunch or a snack. The building is a short taxi ride or a ten-minute walk from downtown Yellowknife.
