Intimate Images and Cyber-protection Act: public survey

Government is asking Nova Scotians for their feedback on the Intimate Images and Cyber-protection Act. We’re especially interested in feedback from people who have used or interacted with the Act in some way. You can complete the survey until 28 January 2022.

The Intimate Images and Cyber-protection Act is designed to discourage and prevent cyberbullying and the sharing of intimate images without consent, and to respond when they do happen.

The Act is required to be reviewed to understand how well it’s working for Nova Scotians. As part of that review, we’re asking Nova Scotians for their feedback.
