Government has concluded consultations 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.
- Appeals: Significantly reduce the average number of days to a decision and communicate clearly with appellants throughout the process.
In October and November 2015, the Workers' Compensation Act Committee of Review held public consultations for individuals and organizations to provide feedback and make suggestions on improvements or reform of The Workers' Compensation Act, 2013, the regulations and the administration of the Act and regulations. The final report from the Workers' Compensation Act Committee of Review was released on November 10, 2016.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. Consideration is being given to all the responses received.
