Information and Privacy Commissioner

The commissioner reviews decisions of the government on public access to government records and offers comment on the implications for privacy protection of proposed legislative schemes or government programs. The NWT's Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act came into effect January 1, 1997. 

The commissioner is required to submit an annual report on the activities of his/her office to the Legislative Assembly. To find copies of annual reports, look on our Tabled Documents page or contact the Legislative Library. If you have questions or concerns about access to information or protection of privacy, contact the Information and Privacy Commissioner.
