Fill out the survey
Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board invites members of the public to complete our online survey.
The survey provides Yukoners the opportunity to provide their feedback on many of the policy issues being discussed at the group meetings and public sessions, as well as to provide feedback on any issues with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Workers’ Compensation Act in general.
The survey is also available on the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board website.
External advisory group meetings
We have also invited over 60 governments, agencies, associations and other stakeholder groups representing the broad interests of workers and employers to participate in our external advisory group series of facilitated conversations.
