Modernization of the Workers’ Compensation Act and Occupational Health and Safety Act
Our final public open house will take place in Whitehorse on January 15, 2020, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Mount MacIntyre Recreation Centre. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate.
The Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) on behalf of the Government of Yukon is conducting a public engagement about modernizing the Workers’ Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
The engagement will offer the opportunity for our stakeholders and members of the public to provide input on how to improve the workers’ compensation and occupational health and safety systems now and for the future.
