The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board’s (WCB’s) bridging program provides injured workers with information about other financial assistance options when their WCB benefits are ending. It also offers up to three hours of counselling services.

We offer these services:

  1. We can direct you to other sources of financial assistance:
    1. Check with your employer.
      1. Ask if you have any sick days you can use.
      2. If you are part of an extended benefits program, ask if you qualify for long-term disability.
    2. Check with Service Canada to see if you qualify for sickness benefits through employment insurance.
