Our Board of Directors

Our board members are representative of the interests of workers, employers and all Albertans. Each director brings unique and diverse experience. Collectively they provide oversight to ensure our strategic direction is sound.

Accountable to Alberta’s Minister of Labour and Immigration, each board member’s work on board standing committees helps ensure the workers’ compensation system is sustainable, well governed and balanced.
