The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) operates like an insurance company. We provide guaranteed benefits and programs to injured workers in industries covered by The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013 (the Act) and we protect registered employers from lawsuits when a workplace injury happens.
Our costs are funded entirely by premiums paid by Saskatchewan employers in covered industries. Contributing factors to employers’ premium rates include claims costs and payroll. Learn more about premium rates and how they’re set. Any injured worker in an industry covered by the Act can submit a claim for benefits and programs. Any employer in an industry covered by the Act must register with the WCB and pay invoiced premiums.
The WCB’s vision is to eliminate injuries and restore abilities. This is the fundamental driver of all that we do on behalf of our customers – the workers and employers of the province. That’s why we are leaders in promoting workplace safety and injury prevention.
