In 2016, the maximum assessable earning is $69,242. Employers are asked to provide a payroll estimate at the beginning of the year so the WCB can determine employers’ premiums.

In 2016, the average employer premium decreased from the 2015 level of $1.46 to $1.34, which is an 8.2 per cent decrease.
