Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) Review – Get Involved

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The WCB is being reviewed for the first time in 15 years. The Government of Alberta has established a Panel and a consultation process for input from workers, employers, labour unions, safety and industry associations, key partners and interested Albertans to help the Panel and the Government get a thorough understanding of WCB issues in order to prepare a final report, which will lead to improvements and fixes to the WCB.

I encourage our membership to participate in this review process, and to share opinions on, insights to, and experiences with the WCB. The first stage of the consultation process is underway, via an Online Questionnaire: June 6 to July 15, 2016.

Information on the WCB Review process is available on the GOA website:

This is an important opportunity to raise and address WCB issues and concerns.

In Solidarity,
Brother Kevin Lecht
