Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island


The WCB exists to help workers recover from workplace injury and illness.

We do this by providing benefits and services to workers to reduce the impact of workplace injury and illness. Together with our stakeholders, we promote safe workplaces and protect workers and employers through a no-fault accident insurance system.

Safety is everyone's responsibility. As an Island worker, you are responsible to work safely and do all you can to create a safe workplace to prevent injuries from happening.

If an injury occurs, the WCB's priority is to make sure you receive the assistance you need. We will work with you so that you understand your role in managing your claim.

You are an important partner in your recovery. If a workplace injury occurs, the WCB will work with you, your employer and your health care provider to help you recover and return to work safely.

You can expect to be treated with fairness, care and respect. We will act with integrity and professionalism and communicate with you openly and honestly.

More WCB information is available in our guide, Information for Workers booklet as well as in our resources for workers.

If you have questions about your claim with the WCB, please contact us.
