Hearing loss claims

If you suffer from hearing loss and believe it is related to your employment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation coverage.

If you would like to submit a claim, first consider the following two questions.

1. While working in Yukon, were you around hazardous noise for either:

  • two or more years continuously? or
  • five or more years intermittently?

2. Did you have a hearing test, either:

  • at the time you were around workplace hazardous noise? or
  • within two years since you were last around workplace hazardous noise?

If you answered “yes” to questions 1 and 2, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation coverage related to your hearing loss.
