Online ePetitions Available on the Legislative Assembly Website

YELLOWKNIFE (October 9, 2012) – The Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, the Honourable Jackie Jacobson, has announced that the Legislative Assembly’s ePetitions site will be available to the public on Wednesday, October 10. The online ePetitions site can be found on the Legislative Assembly’s website under the ePetitions link. 

Following the success of an ePetition pilot project, the Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories adopted a motion on June 14, 2012, to implement an ongoing electronic petition service to operate in conjunction with traditional petitions. 

“The people of the Northwest Territories benefited from having access to online petitions during the pilot project. By providing this service, people can sign petitions easily even if they live in remote communities,” says Speaker Jacobson. 

On Wednesday, October 10, you can view the ePetitions site, add a petition, or sign any existing petitions by visiting and clicking on the ePetitions link.
