What does the ATIPP Act do for me?

The ATIPP Act ensures that every individual has a right to access information and to protection of their privacy in information held by public bodies.

 

Yukon’s ATIPP Act guarantees:

  • 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 decision made by public bodies about access and privacy.

What type of information is accessible?

  • Your own personal information
  • Records dealing with all aspects of government operations

 

What type of information is not accessible?

There are certain types of personal and government program information that are not accessible, such as:

  • personal information about other individuals; and
  • information that could
    • cause a person or a public body to make or lose money;
    • be a threat to public safety;
    • interfere with law enforcement; and
  • Cabinet records for up to 15 years.

 

The act applies to all records held by public bodies:

  • all Yukon government departments,
  • secretariats and other similar executive agencies of the Yukon government, and
  • additional public bodies explicitly designated in the Designation of Public Bodies Regulation pursuant to the act.
