Experience Rating Program Enhancements for 2022 - September 27, 2021

The Experience Rating Program offers a financial incentive for employers to create safer workplaces by adjusting assessment rates based on their claims costs history. The WCB conducted a review of the program to ensure that it is fair, effective and easily understood. As a result of this review, which included consultation with stakeholders, we are putting improvements in place for 2022.
