Workers' Compensation for Post-Secondary Students

Effective July 1, 2021, the Saskatchewan Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) and the Ministry of Advanced Education entered into an Agreement to extend workers' compensation coverage to eligible post-secondary students undertaking unpaid work-integrated learning assignments. The Agreement has a five-year term and outlines the coverage eligibility criteria pursuant to this arrangement.

All host organizations/employers must be registered with the WCB.

In order for students to have valid workers' compensation coverage, a signed and completed Consents and Waiver of Liability form must be submitted to the program administrator at their post-secondary institution prior to commencing any work-integrated learning assignments. This responsibility falls on both the post-secondary institutions and the students, and a single Consents and Waiver of Liability form shall extend coverage for the entire length of all eligible programs. By signing the Consents and Waiver of Liability form, eligible students agree to accept workers' compensation coverage per the terms and conditions of the Agreement, which includes waiving the right to sue. Please visit the WCB website for coverage details, claims, submission procedures and reporting forms.
