Workers’ Compensation Board Services

What is the Workers’ Compensation Board?

The Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) provides no-fault disability insurance for workers and employers in the province of Alberta, including wage-replacement benefits and medical aid. The program is 100% funded by the employer. The WCB makes claim benefit decisions and supports rehabilitation services based on assessing claims and applying the Workers’ Compensation Board Act. If a person has been injured at work, either physically or psychologically, they have the right to report their injury/illness to their employer.

Why is Work So
Important?

Productive activity is essential for mental health and well-being. Prolonged absence from one’s normal routine, including work, can be detrimental to our mental, emotional, physical, and social health. Discussing work-related concerns with your healthcare provider and creating a plan to address these issues is the first step to recovery. When we avoid discussing and addressing work-related challenges, we can delay recovery time, and subsequently increase risk for depression, anxiety, social isolation, poorer quality of life, and even premature death.

What is the Claims Process?

In order to submit a claim, WCB requires information about the injury from the worker, employer, and healthcare provider. Once notified, employers are required by law to report the injury to WCB within 72 hours if a worker is unable to do their job beyond the day of accident, or if they need medical treatment beyond first aid. Healthcare providers are required by law to report a workplace injury and treatment to WCB within 48 hours of treatment, including the physical or psychological symptoms that are causing a person to be off work for more than a day and unable to perform their regular working duties. If the information gathered supports a compensable work-related condition, the claim is accepted, and benefits and services begin.
