Workers compensation coverage is no-fault insurance. This means if an injury occurs in the workplace, both you and your employees are protected regardless of how the injury happened.

WCB coverage provides:

  • protection from liability in the event of a worker injury
  • prevention services through industry-based safety programs (IBSPs) and SAFE Work MB
  • assistance with Return to Work plans
  • wages to your workers while they recover
  • extended healthcare benefits for a workplace injury
