Bill

Bill 15 Document Formalization, Service and Notice Reform Statute Law Amendment Act

Vote topic

Mr. Speaker, I move, seconded by the honourable Member for Hay River South, that Bill 15, Document Formalization, Service and Notice Reform Statute Law Amendment Act, be read for the second time. This bill amends 34 statutes of the Northwest Territories to improve access to justice for residents of the Northwest Territories by:

• providing practical and straightforward options for the service of documents, including alternatives to the use of mail;

• updating and simplifying the processes to give notice to individuals and the public at large;

• eliminating unnecessary formalities, such as requiring documents to be supported by affidavits or otherwise witnessed; and

• increasing effectiveness, reducing delay and inconvenience, and lowering costs for the government and the public.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
