Confidential Process

The YPA protects the act of making a report. Section 44 of the Act stipulates that no one may disclose or be compelled to disclose the identity of a person who has reported a situation. Anyone who chooses to identify themselves can be certain that their identity will not be disclosed without their consent.

The YPA also stipulates that no one may be prosecuted for providing information in good faith when reporting a situation (YPA, s. 43).
