Workers’ Compensation Act Committee of Review
The Workers' Compensation Act Committee of Review sought feedback from the public on the Saskatchewan workers’ compensation system.
1. About the Review of the Workers’ Compensation Act
Under The Workers' Compensation Act, 2013 (Act) the government must appoint a Workers' Compensation Act Committee of Review at regular times. In 2019, the Act was changed to give the committee five years between reviews.
The last Committee of Review was appointed on August 5, 2021. The committee gathered information from stakeholders as part of their review of the Saskatchewan compensation system.
The committee then prepared a report on their findings. In the report, the committee made 34 recommendations for changes to the Act and regulations, and changes in how the Workers' Compensation Board administers the Act and regulations.
The feedback period is now over.
