Alberta’s WCB covers over 2.1 million workers at over 150,000 employers throughout the province.
WCB is being reviewed for the first time in 15 years. To do that, we need input from workers, employers, labour unions, safety and industry associations, key partners and interested Albertans to help us get a thorough understanding of the issues in order to help us prepare our final report.
How input will be used
Input provided will help us develop our recommendations to the Minister of Labour. We expect to provide our final report and recommendations in spring 2017. Once our report is submitted, it will be up to the Government of Alberta to decide what actions to take.
We encourage you to sign up for updates and check this website regularly. Most importantly, we look forward to hearing from you and reading your insights and ideas.
How to get involved
Whether you’ve interacted with WCB or not, we know you'll have valuable input, opinions and insights to share. The panel is ready to hear your opinions and experiences with the workers' compensation system.

Through fall 2016 and winter 2017, we will work with a broad range of stakeholders, including workers, small and medium businesses, large employers, industry association and unions to investigate issues in greater details.
Discussion sessions with injured workers who have firsthand experience with the workers’ compensation system were held in September 2016 in several locations across Alberta. Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in attending these sessions.
