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.

Area 78 Transition Meeting - Nov 17, 18, 2017

This meeting is held in November of each odd numbered year after the election of Table Officers. Current Table Officers, and Committee Chairs use this meeting to pass off information and material to their successor.

This web site observes all AA's practices and principles. Since 'anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions', we practice anonymity at all times. A web site is a public medium which has the potential for reaching the broadest possible audience and, therefore, requires the same safeguards that we use at the level of press, radio and film.
