Moving to Yellowknife

Yellowknife Health Care Options


NWT Health Care Card

It is a good idea to submit your applications for an NWT Health Care Card as soon as you arrive in Yellowknife. All the information you need is at the website below.

Family Doctor

Yellowknife is a thriving city with many people but the number of Family Doctors is limited. We suggested when moving to Yellowknife that you make plans to arrange a family doctor as soon as possible. It is important to note that it can take time to get an appointment.

The Yellowknife Health Authority has more information regarding medical heath care in Yellowknife.

There are a number of clinics as well as the Stanton Territorial Hospital to meet the majority of your medical needs.
