Policy open for consultation

We are seeking stakeholder feedback on the following topic:

  • Working remotely – Policy 02-01, Part I, and Part II, Applications 1 to 3
    More people are working from home and employers are re-examining physical location as a requirement for employment. Our draft policy revisions reflect this changing nature of work by providing additional guidance and detail to help workers and employers know what may be covered. Review our draft policy and provide your feedback.

  • Consultation is open until March 6, 2023.

Policy updates

  • Opioids
    We revised our prescribed opioid analgesics policy to reflect current medical evidence, advice, and knowledge about the benefits and risks of opioids prescribed for acute pain management and long-term opioid therapy.

  • Funding Policy
    Our Board of Directors approved changes to our Funding Policy after an online consultation with stakeholders. Changes clarify how we distribute surplus funding to employers.

  • 2023 annual updates
    We updated cost-of-living adjustments (COLA), maximum compensable earnings, and travel, meal, and clothing allowances for 2023. There are no changes to burial, cremation, and memorial expenses.
