Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island

Workplace Injury

The WCB protects workers by providing benefits and services to help you recover from your workplace injury and safely return to work.

You and your employer should make every effort to create a safe workplace. But if an injury does occur, as a worker, you are responsible to:
  • Get medical attention or physiotherapy if required, and tell your health care provider that your injury or illness happened at work. Your employer is responsible to provide first aid and immediate transport to medical treatment, if needed.
  • Report the injury to your employer and to the WCB.
  • Provide the WCB with the information necessary to process your claim.
  • Follow your health care provider's plan for treatment and recovery.
  • Keep in contact with your employer and the WCB throughout your claim.
  • Work with your employer, your health care provider, and the WCB to develop a plan to return to work in a timely and safe manner.
