What is Workers' Compensation?
Accidents happen and Workers' Compensation programs are designed to protect employees from financial hardships associated with workplace injuries or illnesses. Most of these programs are administered at the provincial or territorial level, including the Workers' Compensation Board (WBC), Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), and Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CSST).
