New Pension System Proposal

New Pension System Proposal

The WSCC is currently reviewing the pension compensation system and is requesting feedback from all our stakeholders and partners on the proposed changes. All feedback is welcome and will be carefully considered as part of the decision-making process to ensure pension benefits for injured workers and their dependants are equitable and reflect current needs and good practice. Please read the New Pension System Proposal 2020: Discussion Paper for information on the current system and the proposed changes. A short overview of the proposal is also provided in the Discussion Paper Summary.

How can I share my views?

  1. You are invited to share your feedback by completing this online survey. The survey is available in English, French, and Inuktitut. It is a mix of multiple choice and open answer questions. It should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. If you are unable to complete the survey in one sitting, you will be able to save your progress and return without losing information.
