Provincial Workers' Compensation Boards in Canada


Below is some contact information for agencies across Canada that are responsible for workers' compensation in the federal, provincial and territorial jurisdictions. Check the "Blue Pages" or other government telephone directory listings in your locality to find the telephone number of the office closest to you.

There is also the Association of WCBs of Canada (AWCBC). Among other activities, the AWCBC coordinates the National Work Injuries Statistics Program and provides statistical data from 1993 on the Number of Accepted Time Loss Injuries and Diseases and the Number of Fatalities for each Canadian jurisdiction.
