Interprovincial COR Reciprocity

As a member of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA), BCCSA has a signed agreement for temporary COR reciprocity between all of the provincial construction safety associations. 

Letter of COR Reciprocity from BCCSA

The requirements to obtain a Letter of COR Reciprocity from the BCCSA are:

  • The firm must not be currently operating in the province of BC
  • The firm must not have an active WorkSafeBC account 
  • The firm must contact the provincial construction safety association in which they hold a valid COR and request that the association submit an application for COR reciprocity on their behalf to the BCCSA. 

If, upon review the application for COR reciprocity is approved, BCCSA will issue the firm a temporary letter of COR reciprocity that is valid for 6 months.  This letter will serve as the documentation for bidding on BC projects requiring COR certification.

Should the company be successful in securing the contract, they will be required to achieve COR Certification through the BCCSA COR Program.  

Letter of COR Reciprocity from another Provincial Construction Safety Association


If your firm holds a valid BCCSA COR and is seeking temporary COR reciprocity from another provincial construction safety association, please contact the BCCSA at cor@bccsa.ca or toll free at 1-877-860-3675.

BCCSA will complete and submit an application for COR reciprocity on your firm’s behalf to the provincial construction safety association in which COR reciprocity is being sought.
