Vocational services

Page intro

If your injury leaves you with work restrictions so a job change is needed, vocational services can be arranged.

These services may include:

  • career counselling
  • job-finding skills development
  • help with job searches
  • opportunities for on-the-job training
  • formal vocational training

To reduce the effect of your injury, the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) could pay for modifications to your home, vehicle or workstation.


If your customer care facilitator refers you to a vocational rehabilitation specialist for a personal care assessment, you may qualify for a personal care allowance.

The WCB may allow reimbursement for expenses related to vocational rehabilitation. Please note that all expenses need prior approval from your vocational rehabilitation specialist. Ensure that all expenses have a corresponding receipt attached to prevent payment delays.

Vocational expenses may include:

  • program application fees
  • tuition
  • books
  • mandatory school supplies
  • computer equipment
  • safety shoes, glasses or gloves

Workers can submit vocational expenses and attach receipts with the online Vocational Expenses (VPAY) form. View the how to submit worker expenses online guide or learn more about the ease of the WCB’s secure online services.
