AA Preamble

  • ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS© is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
  • The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
  • A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
  • Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

AA - Bridging the Mackenzie...

The 1,045-metre Deh Cho bridge (known locally as the AA bridge) crosses over the Mackenzie River in the Northwest Territories – a monumental waterway where the seasonal freeze-up and ice break-up previously blocked an essential transport route for weeks at a time.

The arching cable-stayed superstructure towers over the flat Arctic landscape near Fort Providence and now provides year-round road passage across the Mackenzie to and from Yellowknife, replacing the winter ice bridge and summer ferry.
