Proposed changes in the new Access to Information and Protection of Privacy (ATIPP) Act

How do I participate?

Take the online survey between May 22 and July 20, 2018.

If you would prefer to fill out the survey on paper, download the survey and print it, or request a hardcopy by emailing atippreview@gov.yk.ca or phoning 1-800-661-0408 ext. 5128. You can also send any questions or concerns you may have to the same contact information.

The survey has nine proposed changes and should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. It presents the existing issue, followed by the proposed solution and then the rationale, for each of the nine changes. You can answer, or skip the questions as you like.

The engagement team is currently meeting with stakeholders, program administrators and others who may be directly impacted by the new Act and future regulations.

What is 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.
