Find the results

In September we will be publishing a What We Heard document summarizing the results of the public engagement and how they were used in finalizing the ATIPP Act.

The document will be available on and on this page.

What was this engagement about?

Much has changed since the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPP) Act was introduced in 1995. We’re creating a new Act and we want to know if we got it right.

We want our new Act to be more open, to increase the amount of information available and to provide client-focused service delivery to Yukoners while protecting their right to privacy.

Our proposed changes come from information from public engagement done in June and July 2016, the Yukon Information and Privacy Commissioner’s review of the Act, staff experiences, and legislation in other jurisdictions.

How will my input make a difference?

Your views will let us know if we’re on the right track, and will help us develop legislation that meets Yukoners’ needs now and into the future.
