Collection, use and disclosure of student information

Protection of personal information 

Personal information collected from Yukon University applicants will be held and used in accordance with the Yukon Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPP) and the Yukon University Information Access and Privacy Protection policy.

This information will be used for admission, registration, fee collection, and maintenance of your student record and other purposes consistent with the mandate of the institution. Contact information is shared with the Yukon University Student Union. The personal information you provide is also used for authorized statistical and research purposes.

Students who would like Yukon University to release financial and/or academic information to an individual, a parent, or an agency external to the University must give the University written permission to release that information. At the time of registration, students may authorize the release of specific information to individuals or organizations.

Please refer to the Yukon University Information Access and Privacy Protection Policy for more information on the use of student information. If you have any questions about the collection, use, and disclosure of student information, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 867 668 8710.

Statistics Act

Statistics Canada is the national statistical agency. As such, Statistics Canada carries out hundreds of surveys each year on a wide range of matters, including education.

It is essential to be able to follow students across time and institutions to understand, for example, the factors affecting enrolment demand at post-secondary institutions. The increased emphasis on accountability for public investment means that it is also important to understand 'outcomes'.

In order to conduct such studies, Statistics Canada asks all colleges and universities to provide data on students and graduates. Institutions collect and provide to Statistics Canada student identification information (student's name, student ID number, Social Insurance Number), student contact information (address and telephone number), student demographic characteristics, and enrolment information.

The federal Statistics Act provides the legal authority for Statistics Canada to obtain access to personal information held by educational institutions. The information may be used for statistical purposes only, and the confidentiality provisions of the Statistics Act prevent the information from being released in any way that would identify a student.

Students may email Statistics Canada if they have any questions.
