What's new in policy?

September 5, 2018

Bill 30: An Act to Protect the Health and Well-being of Working Albertans received royal assent on December 15, 2017. Bill 30 amends the Workers’ Compensation Act and includes a number of new provisions. Although some of the new provisions came into force earlier this year and are reflected in previously published policy documents, the majority came into force on September 1, 2018. This transmittal includes both new policies and policy amendments resulting from Bill 30. Unless stated otherwise in the following summaries, all the changes are effective September 1, 2018, and apply to claims with a date of accident on or after that date.
