Overview

The workers’ compensation system helps workers who become ill or injured on the job recover and return to work. Employers fund the system through premiums.

We gathered feedback from Albertans to make sure the workers’ compensation system is efficient, affordable and sustainable while serving the needs of employers and workers.

Topics under review include:

  • benefits for workers
  • supports for return to work after an injury or illness
  • sustainability of the workers’ compensation system
  • enhancements of workers’ compensation processes
