Continuing Professional Development Seminars


April 20th, 2021

Engineers Yukon invites members to attend a virtual information session on the new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) category: Caregiving.

Per our recent announcement, effective January 1, 2021, members can claim up to 20 CPD hours per year for performing caregiving tasks that are within the scope of our definition at a rate of one CPD hour for every 15 hours of caregiving.

The CPD program acknowledges the value of caregiving within our profession and society. While any person can claim the CPD hours, this change will have the biggest impact on women who often have a more significant caregiving role. Acknowledging the diverse caregiving experience, Engineers Yukon has defined caregiving tasks to include the following:

  • Acting on behalf of a person within the medical, education, financial or other system;
  • Providing physical care for a person including transportation to go shopping, meal preparation, housework and/or assistance with outdoor work;
  • Providing personal or medical care for a person including help with taking a bath, getting dressed, using the toilet, changing dressings or taking medications;
  • Managing a person’s care or finances; or
  • Being directly responsible for the care and upbringing of a child under 18 years of age.

At this virtual information session we will introduce the new category and the history of its creation, and then open the floor to your questions.

If you would like to attend this session but are unable to due to timing, please email to let us know. We may schedule a second information session if there is enough interest.
