Caregiving leave for parents and families in Yukon
How do I participate?
Review the current and proposed leave options in Yukon and provide your feedback in writing to Yukon Employment Standards, P.O. Box 2703 (C7), Whitehorse, YT Y1A 2C6 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 6, 2018.
What is this engagement about?
The Government of Canada made changes to family caregiving and parental leave benefits under the federal Employment Insurance program.
Yukon, as with most other jurisdictions, typically provides leave periods that align with the benefits provided under Canada’s Employment Insurance program. Yukon is considering making changes to the amount of parental leave and leave for people to care for critically ill family members.
We want to know if Yukoners have any concerns or feedback on these changes.
How will my input make a difference?
Your feedback will help us evaluate Yukon legislation and the implications of potential changes to these leave periods.
Where can I find results?
We will post a summary report of the feedback we receive on this site in November 2018.
