What's New

Here we will list consultations taking place across the province to help develop policies on a wide range of issues as well as new or amended policies

Open for consultation

1) Re-employment Consultation

In December 2020, the WCB initiated Stage 1 consultation on re-employment and brought together small stakeholder groups to obtain their feedback on the issues and questions we should consider as we review Section 5 of the WCB Policy Manual on Re-employment.  To view the Stage 1 consultation "Issues Identification Paper: Re-employment" please click the link.

The Board is now seeking stakeholder feedback on the Stage 2 paper "Clarification of Re-employment Polices: Section 5 of the WCB Policy Manual".  The consultation period is open from June 25, 2021 to September 30, 2021


2) Housekeeping Changes to WCB Policies

Periodically the WCB reviews its policies to identify potential housekeeping changes.

Housekeeping changes typically include:

  • the correction of spelling and grammar errors
  • updating references and WCB department names
  • updating minor process features

Reviewing housekeeping changes to WCB policies was last done in 2016-17. These changes help to ensure policies are accurate, up-to-date, relevant, and reflective of current terminology and language. The Board is seeking stakeholder feedback on a number of policy housekeeping changes.  Please refer to "Policy Background Paper: Housekeeping Changes to WCB Policies" for a complete summary of changes. The consultation period is open from June 25, 2021 to September 30, 2021.
