January 3, 2014

Gary Dickson, Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner, has submitted his resignation to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly effective January 31, 2014.

Dickson was initially appointed November 1, 2003 as Saskatchewan’s first full-time Information and Privacy Commissioner. He was reappointed for a further five year term in April 2009.

The resignation is solely for personal reasons. Dickson expressed his appreciation for the unique opportunity to be the first full-time Information and Privacy Commissioner in the province. He lauded the work done by the seven employees in the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC): “I am extremely proud of the team of access and privacy professionals in this office and what they have accomplished in just ten years.”

Dickson also noted that: “We have seen considerable progress in the way that Saskatchewan public bodies and health trustees address both statutory goals of greater transparency and heightened privacy protection for citizens. This reflects good work by access and privacy coordinators in a very large number of public bodies and health trustees.”
