Seniors’ Information Line & Handbook

The Seniors’ Information Line

The Seniors’ Information Line is a resource to older adults, service providers, caregivers and family. This service informs seniors and elders about programs and services, and assists those who are struggling with access to programs. It can help older adults dealing with abuse by listening and providing information.

This is a telephone service offered by the NWT Seniors’ Society. We are available Monday to Friday during work hours. If we are not in the office, we will get back to you. If you have a problem and want to talk confidentially, call:

867-920-7444 or toll free: 1-800-661-0878



Seniors’ Information Handbook

If you are 50 years or older and live in the NWT, the Seniors’ Information Handbook is a convenient resource and contains a comprehensive source of information about programs and services available in the NWT.  The handbook was prepared in partnership with NWT Housing Corporation and the GNWT Departments of Health and Social Services, Education, Culture and Employment, Municipal and Community Affairs and Transportation. First published in 2001, this latest edition (2017) continues to be a good source of information.

If you would like a hard copy of the handbook please contact the Communications Unit of Department of Health & Social Services at (867) 767-9052, ext. 49034 or email
