Health Information Privacy and Management Act: Information for Custodians

The Health Information Privacy and Management Act (HIPMA) is a new, modern, comprehensive law similar to laws in most Canadian provinces and territories. As of August 31, 2016 the Act is in force.

HIPMA governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal health information by Yukon custodians. The Act recognizes both the right of individuals to protect their personal health information and the need to collect, use and disclose personal health information to provide, support and manage health care.

HIPMA sets out a number of new rules for managing personal health information. The following toolkit is designed to help you meet your obligations under the Act.
