The Yukon Ombudsman, Information and Privacy Commissioner and Public Interest Disclosure Commissioner, Diane McLeod-McKay, is adjusting the way her office interacts with the public, as a result of the risks associated with COVID-19.
In order to support efforts underway to implement "social distancing" and for the protection of her staff and the public, McLeod-McKay is limiting personal contact by accepting complaints and inquiries by phone and email rather than in-person.
"Our office will remain open and we will continue our work, but any complaints or questions from citizens, under any of our mandates, will for now be accepted only by telephone or, to a more limited degree, through email," said McLeod-McKay. "Yukoners should be aware that email is not a secure form of communication, so emails should not include sensitive personal information. Telephone is the preferred method of communication at this time."
