The WCB system in B.C. is under review – have your say!
Did you or someone you know:
• have difficulty with their workers' compensation claim?
• have difficulty returning to work after a workplace injury?
If so, you can share your view about what an improved workers’ compensation system should look like, and make your voice heard. The deadline for all submissions is July 19.
The goal of the review is to shift the workers’ compensation system to become more worker-centred. Retired labour lawyer Janet Patterson, who is leading the review, really wants to hear from injured workers about their personal experiences with the system and how it could be improved.
There are three ways to participate:
1. Take an online questionnaire
2. Send in written comments
Written comments can be sent by email, mail, or fax. Comments do not have to be made in a formal way, they can be made in point form, or hand written, and they can include relevant attachments.
As well, submissions may be made in languages other than English and the Reviewer will translate the material into English.
