If you wish to submit an appeal, you can do so directly with the WCB.

If you are an injured worker and are looking for assistance in submitting an appeal, you can contact the Office of the Workers’ Advocate:

If you have a complaint about the WCB that falls outside the mandate of the FPO, Ombudsman Saskatchewan may be able to assist you

If you have a complaint about The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013 or its regulations, your MLA or the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety may be able to assist you. As well, every five years the Committee of Review meets with interested persons or groups who may suggest changes to the legislation.
