The Oil-Fired Appliance Safety Statutory Amendment Act was passed in the Legislative Assembly, making Yukon the first Canadian jurisdiction to require carbon monoxide detectors in all dwellings with fuel-burning appliances or attached garages. The government is also working on providing training for the local oil-fired appliance industry and is continuing a series of public awareness campaigns on carbon monoxide and heating system safety.
