The Yukon First Nations Business Registry is administered by the Yukon First Nations Chamber of Commerce. Chamber staff are also bound and committed to protect your privacy by complying with the ATIPP Act.
The purpose of this privacy statement is to inform you of the personal information that we may collect from you when you interact with the registry.
Collection of personal information
We collect personal information under section 29(c) of the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPP Act) for the purposes stated below.
Publishing information about Yukon First Nations businesses
Yukon First Nations businesses can submit information to the registry. Information from that submission will be published in the registry and accessible by the public. This includes:
- Business Name and Business Type
- Business’ associated Yukon First Nation and Traditional Territory
- Business information, address, telephone, fax, and website
- Primary and Secondary Business Contact information
- Products and services business can provide
It may take between 3 to 5 business days from the time you submit your business information and the time we review and publish it to the registry.
If a business has any concerns about us publishing their personal information in the registry, they should inform us when filing the return. We have discretion about whether to disclose personal information in the registry where doing so may threaten an individual’s safety. (This was lobbyist registry-specific so you might not need this).
