Nunavut’s legal aid offices, including its regional clinics and community offices, remain closed to the public until further notice to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Maliganik Tukisiniarvik in Iqaluit, Kivalliq Legal Services in Rankin Inlet, the Kitikmeot Law Centre in Cambridge Bay and the Legal Services Board of Nunavut’s head office in Gjoa Haven closed to the public on March 16.

Although offices are closed, all staff are still working and can be reached by phone.

To make contact easier, Nunavut Legal Aid recently put in place an updated call-in system, so the telephone numbers have changed.
