Labour/Union Representative Seminars

WCB offers two seminars specifically designed for labour/union representatives. They are offered in Edmonton and Calgary and should assist in helping understand WCB claims and the review/appeal process. The seminars are designed to be taken together over 2 days, but can also be taken as stand alone.

Note: Approximately one week prior to the seminar date, participants will be sent an email confirmation with links to class materials. Participants will need to print and bring the materials with them to the seminar. It is recommended the material is reviewed prior to attending.
