Yukon Information and Privacy Commissioner


The Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act was proclaimed into force on July 1, 1996.

The purposes of the ATIPP Act are to make public bodies more accountable to the public and to protect personal privacy. The Act does this by giving the public a right of access to records, subject only to limited and specific exceptions; giving individuals a right of access to, and a right to request correction of, their own personal information; and preventing the unauthorized collection, use of disclosure of personal information by public bodies.

Independent reviews of decisions made by public bodies under the ATIPP Act are conducted by the Information and Privacy Commissioner.
