Province to refund $37 million in WCB premiums to employers

Premier Brian Pallister announced Tuesday the Workers Compensation Board will return close to $37 million in surplus funds to employers.

“This will keep our workers compensation structure strong, but it allows us to return money to businesses at a time when cash flow is a real challenge,” Pallister said at a news conference.

In May, eligible employers will receiveĀ a credit to their account based on 20 per cent of 2019 premiums, he said.
