Videos & Resources

Each fall we communicate our rate setting information for the coming year.

To continue to improve the rate setting process and provide the information to more stakeholders, we held two public sessions, one in Regina and one in Saskatoon. A live webcast was also offered during the Regina session. The sessions and webcast provided information about:

  • The rate setting process.
  • Key factors that influence premium rates, and
  • The WCB’s preliminary premium rates for 2019.

If you were unable to attend either the webcast or the information sessions, please take the time to watch the video below.

Read the transcripts from the Question & Answer periods of both the Regina and Saskatoon sessions.
