Know Your Rights

On January 1, 2020, Part X of the Child, Youth, and Family Services Act (CYFSA) came into force, creating a new access and privacy framework for Ontario’s child and family services sector. The Information and Privacy Commissioner (IPC) will oversee these new rules for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

To raise awareness of access and privacy rights among, children, youth and families, the IPC has prepared a brochureposter and quick reference card.


Please contact Payukotayno’s Privacy Officer at 705-336-2229 or , if you would like to:

  • Ask about your privacy rights
  • Make an access or correction request
  • Make a complaint
