ATIPPA Review Committee Update

The ATIPPA Review Committee was recently established by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador to conduct an independent statutory review of the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPPA), including an examination of the amendments made through Bill 29. Committee Members are Clyde Wells (Chair), Jennifer Stoddart and Doug Letto.

At the Committee’s invitation some 30 individuals and organizations up to May 12th have indicated that they intend to make submissions to the Committee. That date was not a final deadline.; It was chosen to allow the Committee to have the information necessary to enable it to properly schedule dates when, and places where, those interested could make a presentation.

The Committee is anxious to hear from any other person, organization, municipality or governmental agency who might wish to make a written or oral submission to the Committee. Again, it would be helpful if you could advise the Committee as soon as possible of your intention to make a representation.
