The Minister of Municipal and Community Affairs, Shane Thompson, has extended the State of Emergency in the City of Yellowknife. This extension is being made under s.14 of the Emergency Management Act.

The extension continues through December 13, 2021.

This State of Emergency was initially instated to address the need for additional shelter space as a result of ongoing capacity limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) continues its ongoing efforts to protect the health of the residents of the Northwest Territories. All residents are reminded to follow the orders and advice from the Chief Public Health Officer during this challenging time.

The GNWT is currently looking at other options for meeting the needs for this vulnerable population and the need for the state of emergency in Yellowknife.
