guidelines for WCB staff. Thus, staff are specifically directed to use policy where applicable, rather than re-interpret the legislation.
- Procedures are authorized by the Chief Executive Officer and are referenced within a policy document. Procedures specify how a given
policy will be implemented and are accessible to external stakeholders on this website.
