Notes:

  1. Source: Compiled from Department of Justice, GNWT document and Access to Justice Claims.
  2. Data prior to 1999–2000 include the present territory of Nunavut. Historical expenditures suggest that, prior to the division of the territory, 60% of expenditures were for what is now the NWT, and 40% for Nunavut.
  3. Integrated funding of legal aid, Courtworkers and PLEI began under the Access to Justice Agreement in fiscal year 1997/98. Prior to that year the three components were funded separately.
