Thank you, Madam Chair. The Information and Privacy Commissioner Committee Report was read into the record on Monday, May 30th, 2022. This is an annual report as both the Health Information Act and Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act require that the Information and Privacy Commissioner file an annual report.

I'd like to thank Mr. Andrew Fox, who appeared before committee on February 10th, 2022. He has stepped into that role after a long time Information and Privacy Commissioner, and he has done great work.

Committee has made a number of recommendations, which I will speak to, but I just wanted to point that I think this is truly a great committee report, and I encourage the Minister of Justice to review it and the GNWT to implement its recommendations.

The last legislature did a lot of great work, and we have one of the best ATIPP Acts in the country but it's become abundantly clear, as the number of complaints rise in this area, that implementation is really key to that act.

So individual Members may have comments on the report. I'd like to thank committee, Mr. Fox, and the department for their work in this area to date. Thank you, Madam Chair.

Thank you, Madam Chair. I move that this committee recommends that the Government of the Northwest Territories, in consultation with the Information and Privacy Commissioner, and by April 1, 2023, establish a government-wide policy that ensures all employees receive appropriate training on the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information. The policy should ensure that new employees receive training early on and all employees receive regular refreshers.

Thank you, Madam Chair. The printed copy I have did not have a back to the motion so I need to add some more words to the motion.
