Victoria/Fraser Valley – A public engagement is now open on British Columbia’s workers’ compensation system and how to shift the system to become more worker centred, as well as how to increase worker and employer confidence.
The public and interested stakeholders are invited to share their views until July 19, 2019. People can submit written feedback by email to Info@wcbreview.ca or by filling in a questionnaire online. Details of the engagement process and a link to the questionnaire can be found here: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/workerscompensationreview/
Public hearings will be held in the following communities:
* Surrey – June 14, 15
* Chilliwack – June 27
There will be public hearings in 14 communities around the province. Anyone wishing to present their views in person to the reviewer is asked to book a time in advance, using the email address above or by phoning 1 833 633-6790 (toll-free within B.C.). All meetings will be open to the public.
Half the times will be reserved for injured workers to ensure their views are heard about what an improved workers’ compensation system should look like.
