April 28th is the Day of Mourning - April 27, 2022

April 28th is the Day of Mourning, honouring the memory of workers who have been injured or killed on the job. On the Day of Mourning, the Workers Compensation Board encourages all Islanders to show their support for those affected by workplace tragedy by:

  • Attending the ceremony hosted by the Prince Edward Island Federation of Labour
  • Displaying a Day of Mourning poster.
  • Wearing a Day of Mourning lapel sticker.
  • Lowering workplace flags at half-mast.
  • Observing a moment of silence.

Posters and lapel stickers are available at the WCB.  Please join us in recognizing the Day of Mourning, and in strengthening the resolve to protect everyone in the workplace through improved health and safety, each and every day.

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.  

 

A summary of the changes is available in the Policy Consultation section of our website.  We invite you to review the changes and provide any further comment by October 27, 2021.
