Let's Talk Yukon - Permanent Paid Sick Days

The need for permanent paid sick leave has become greater than ever before. Without adequate sick leave, many workers have limited options when deciding to go to work sick or stay home.


The Making Work Safe Panel is calling Yukoners to participate in the public consultation on Permanent Paid Sick Days in the Yukon.

Learn more about why paid sick leave matters, the current unpaid sick leave in Yukon, and the international trends supporting paid sick leave.

Your feedback, stories, and ideas are essential in helping the panel make recommendations built on the needs you share.

The Making Work Safe Panel is a collection of individuals brought together under the 2021 Confidence and Supply Agreement(External link) between the Yukon Liberal Government and the Yukon NDP. 

The panel also includes members of the public who represent the voices of workers and employers in Yukon. Together, they have been tasked with providing recommendations by January 31, 2022 on how to implement permanent paid sick days in the Yukon.
