December 14, 2016 - One year ago, Yukon government opened up the ATIPP Act for review.

In June 2016, we launched a public engagement survey to ask Yukoners what they thought about the ATIPP Act, their experiences with ATIPP requests, and what they thought could be done to change or improve the act.

This report incorporates the responses to this public engagement survey, the Yukon’s Information and Privacy Commissioner’s review of the act published in 2015, as well as the conclusions from policy development discussions held within Yukon government and an evaluation of access and privacy legislation in other jurisdictions.

The report is a summary and assessment of the current ATIPP Act and does not contain recommendations for any act amendments. It points out areas and opportunities where improvements to accessing information and protecting privacy could be considered.

What is ATIPP?

The purpose of Yukon's ATIPP Act is to ensure that every individual has a right to access information and to protection of their privacy in information held by public bodies.

The act guarantees certain fundamental rights for individuals including:

  • access to records in the custody and control of Yukon government departments and designated public bodies with certain exceptions;  
  • access to individuals’ own personal information and the right to request correction of wrong information;
  • privacy of personal information in the custody or under the control of public bodies;
  • protection against unauthorized collection, use, disclosure, or disposition of personal information; and
  • independent review of decisions made by public bodies about access and privacy.
