Engineers Yukon COVID-19 Response

Like many other organizations, Engineers Yukon is continuing to monitor the developing situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. At Engineers Yukon we are doing our best to consider and follow the direction of the Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health. We are implementing some precautionary measures to help protect the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors while doing as much as possible to maintain our core operations. The following updates and instructions are issued by the Engineers Yukon Executive Committee. We will continue to assess the situation and provide updates as new information becomes available.

Office Closure

Engineers Yukon staff will be working through alternative work arrangements, where feasible, beginning Tuesday March 17, 2020 until further notice.

Our general reception phone line will continue to be open at 867-667-6727 or you can reach general reception by email at staff@engineersyukon.ca. This inbox will continue to be frequently monitored and someone will pass your message along to the person who can best assist you.

At this time, we will be doing as much as possible to maintain our core operations. However, our response times may be slower than usual given the extreme circumstances. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all move through this constantly evolving situation.

In Person Meetings

Due to the uncertainty and concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic all in-person meetings related to Engineers Yukon are postponed or cancelled, effective immediately. This includes all Committee meetings, regular Council meetings and attendance at any National or Engineers Canada events or meetings. Where necessary to fulfil core operations Council and essential committees will continue to consider information, discuss and vote by electronic means.

Public Events

Until further notice, Engineers Yukon will be postponing all public events, including all in-person continuing professional development activities and outreach activities.

These measures will help protect the health and safety of our staff and volunteers. The risk of potential exposure or transmission increases through travel and attendance at face-to-face meetings. Engineers Yukon Committees are encouraged to meet using electronic means for meetings which cannot be postponed.

Engineers Yukon encourages all Yukoners to carefully monitor this changing situation and follow the directions of the Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health and the other professionals leading our community’s response to COVID-19. Stay home, limit your contact with others, and save lives.
