Saskatchewan Workers' Compensation Board
The Saskatchewan Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) operates as a legislated and independent tribunal, reporting to the legislature of Saskatchewan through the Minister of Advanced Education, Employment and Labour. The Workers' Compensation Act, 1979 (the Act), provides the WCB's operating authority and mandate. Numerous amendments have been made to the Act since 1979.

The WCB provides workplace injury insurance to Saskatchewan businesses covered by the Act, and their employees. Workers' compensation is a no-fault system that protects employers and workers against the result of work injuries. The system has brought stability to the Saskatchewan workplace for over 80 years, providing coverage at a competitive cost and protecting workers and employers against the risks and uncertainties of litigation.

One of the WCB's principal goals is to help Saskatchewan workers and their families recover from workplace injuries. Assistance can take the form of income replacement, medical treatment, and vocational rehabilitation. In recent years, the WCB's mandate has evolved to include the importance of safety and injury prevention programming, and returning an injured worker to suitable employment as soon as it is medically safe to do so.

The WCB raises funds for its operations through premiums paid by employers and from market returns on its investments.
