Workers' Compensation Safety Board of Nova Scotia

Health-Related Programs

The mission of WCB Nova Scotia is to reduce the number of people hurt or killed on the job in our province. We are seeing steady progress in reducing the number of people that are hurt each year, but even one injury is too many. If someone does get hurt, we are there to help them recover.

The following programs are available to help injured workers recover in a safe and timely manner.
