Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island

Workplace Injury

In the event of a workplace injury or illness, the WCB works with workers, employers and health care providers to assist workers to recover and return to work in a timely and safe manner.

Health care providers have an important role in the WCB claim process. In addition to assessment and treatment, health care providers are responsible for:
  • Reporting the work injury to the WCB.
  • Providing functional abilities and estimated recovery times.
  • Maintaining ongoing communication with the worker, the employer and the WCB to support a timely and safe return to work.
