The final report from the Workers’ Compensation Act Committee of Review was released on November 10, 2016.
The Government of Saskatchewan is now inviting feedback on the recommendations from the Committee that would require legislative amendments, including:
- Board Structure and Governance: Modernize Board structure to reflect the diversity of skill sets required to guide the work of the Workers' Compensation Board (WCB).
- Appeals: Significantly reduce the average number of days to a decision and communicate clearly with appellants throughout the process.
Anyone who would like to provide feedback can do so by making a written submission before June 30, 2017. Legislative amendments will be drafted in time for the fall 2017 session of the Legislative Assembly.
Please review the consultation paper Consultation on the Workers’ Compensation Act Committee of Review Recommendations: Board Governance and Appeals to learn more about the recommended legislative amendments we are currently consulting on.
Please provide your written comments about the consultation paper no later than June 30, 2017 to:
Mr. Mike Carr, Deputy Minister
Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety
