The Yukon government is considering legislation as a mechanism to enhance how missing persons investigations are conducted by the RCMP.

When a loved one is missing, time is of the essence. The police are currently limited in their ability to investigate reports of missing persons when there is no evidence of criminal activity.

Missing persons legislation would provide the police with avenues to move more quickly and efficiently on missing persons investigations by allowing access to specific information (e.g.,  telephone, banking, travel and health records) while balancing considerations for an individual’s privacy.
