Average Assessment Rate

The average assessment rate for 2018 is $1.93.

Previous average assessment rates:

  • $1.87 in 2017
  • $1.85 in 2016
  • $1.90 in 2015
  • $2.18 in 2014
  • $2.34 in 2013

The average assessment rate is used when calculating the industry group rates employers will pay in any given year. It is based on three main factors:

  1. Projected payroll for all Yukon employers for the coming year.
  2. Anticipated cost of injuries that are expected to occur in the coming year.
  3. Investment performance of the Compensation Fund.

Yukon employers pay rates that correspond with their particular industry classifications (e.g., Resources and Transportation, Construction or Services) and the risk levels for particular occupations within those classifications (low, medium or high).

A particular industry group rate may be higher or lower than the average rate. In 2017 these rates range from $0.66 per hundred dollars of payroll for the Low Services rate group (e.g., childcare or communication services) to $7.94 for the High Resources and Transportation rate group (e.g., diamond drilling and long-haul trucking).

Current and historical rates are available here.
