The Hay River Health and Social Services Authority in the Northwest Territories says no client records were accessed or stolen following “an incident” at a facility on Wednesday.

In a press release on Thursday evening sent on behalf of the acting CEO of the institution, the agency said there “has been concern amongst the public” that client records were stolen at the time of the incident.

There aren’t any details in the release on what happened during the incident, or where it happened.

As per the statement, no additional comment was possible due to the fact that RCMP investigation is underway.

Officers say no suspects have been identified, and they could also not reveal what facility or building was involved.
