I Have Concerns about Privacy

In Yukon the privacy of your personal information is protected by two laws.

Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPP) protects your personal information held by public bodies such as departments of the Yukon Government, Yukon Housing Corp., Yukon Lottery Corp. Yukon Liquor Corp. Yukon College, Workers Compensation Health and Safety Board, Yukon Hospital Corp., First Nation service authority, Child and Youth Advocate, and some boards, commissions, and foundations established as an agent of government.

Health Information Privacy and Management Act (HIPMA) protects your personal health information held by custodians. Custodians include operators of health care facilities and hospitals, the Yukon Government Department of Health and Social Services, the Many Rivers Counselling and Support Services, the Child Development Centre and most health care providers including physicians, nurses dentists and related professionals, pharmacists, physiotherapists, psychologists, optometrists, occupational therapists, nurses, midwives, naturopaths, speech pathologists and chiropractors.

Both ATIPP and HIPMA set out rules that public bodies and custodians must follow in respect of your personal and health information.
