Certificate of Recognition (COR™) 

COR™ is an occupational health and safety certification program.

  1. COR™ Certification is a tender/contract requirement on the Government of Yukon projects involving construction activities. Please click here to connect with the YG website and further details.  
  2. COR™ Certification is a requirement for other companies such as Yukon Energy. Please click here to connect with Yukon Energy’s website and further details. 
  3. The City of Whitehorse Indemnified Contractors List: The City of Whitehorse has an opportunity for COR/SECOR companies to apply to be on the City of Whitehorse Indemnified contractors list for the next two years. If you have any questions about registration please contact Lynda Harlow at 867-668-8641 or at procurement@whitehorse.ca.     
The Yukon government continues assessing the COR requirement to address government and industry needs and to ensure Yukon continues to reap the benefits of a reduction of accidents and injuries as public and private sector increase adopting safety practices. 

If a contract is subject to this requirement, it will be noted on the tender documents and must be maintained throughout the life of the contract.
