Our Leadership

Our President - Trevor Alexander

My passion for workers’ compensation started 32 years ago as a case manager on the front line, working with people who were permanently injured and with the families of workers who were fatally injured.

Working directly with injured workers, their families, employers and health care providers helped me understand firsthand the importance of the workers’ compensation system and the challenges its stakeholders face. This experience sparked my drive and a lifelong career committed to continually finding new ways to improve the workers’ compensation system—to help make workplaces safer and to make sure workers receive the care and support they need to recover when they’ve been hurt at work.

My journey began in the Northwest Territories and has continued in British Columbia for the past 20 years where I most recently served as the Senior Vice President of Worker and Employer Services. In this role, I was responsible for the leadership and direction of teams involved in claims, prevention, assessments and investigations. During my career I’ve also served as chair of various committees for the Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada (AWCBC).

These experiences have given me a deep understanding of workers’ compensation and inspired a strong commitment to collaborating with the many partners who make the system work—a passion I bring with me to Alberta.

I believe strongly that WCB-Alberta is on a service journey, and I’m excited about leading this journey to serve the workers and employers of this province, while maintaining a financially sustainable system.
