Register an elevator

Contractors have to submit an application and all design drawings before an elevator or other fixed conveyance is installed.

To do so:

  1. Fill out the application for certificate of construction and major alteration.
  2. Submit it along with the completed design drawings.
    In person: 2251B Second Avenue, Whitehorse, Yukon.
    We are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

  3. We review the design drawings to ensure they meet the elevating construction codes (CSA-B44 and CSA B-355). If they do, they are then registered.

Arrange for an inspection

Before you can set up an inspection, you must first confirm you’ve completed the appropriate inspection preparations. Complete and submit the Installers declaration of completion.

Elevators are inspected after installation, major repair or alteration. They are also inspected periodically while in service.
