Work-related catastrophic injuries and deaths

If you’ve been seriously injured on the job, or if a loved one has died from a work-related incident, we’re here to help you. You can get support from the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB).

About the WCB

The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) was established in 1911 through a historic compromise between Saskatchewan workers and employers. Under that compromise, workers injured on the job in covered industries do not have to pay for the benefits they receive or sue their employers to get them. Costs are paid entirely by Saskatchewan employers in covered industries. This is referred to as a no-fault insurance system, also referred to as the compensation system. 

The WCB’s vision is to eliminate injuries and restore abilities. The WCB is governed by The Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013.
