Streamlining Workers' Compensation and Prioritizing Safety

November 2, 2023

In a recent announcement, Ontario and Saskatchewan have decided to maintain steady employer premium rates under their workers' compensation systems for the year 2024. This news is a welcome development for businesses, as it provides financial predictability and stability.

Ontario's Commitment to Stability

Ontario's average premium rate, set by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), will remain at $1.30 per $100 of insurable payroll in 2024. This decision reflects the province's dedication to creating a stable financial environment for businesses, encouraging them to invest in safety measures and injury prevention.

Saskatchewan's Balanced Approach

Saskatchewan will also maintain its average employer rate at $1.28 per $100 of payroll for 2024. The Saskatchewan Workers Compensation Board (WCB) aims to balance stable rates with a fully funded compensation system, ensuring that both employers and employees are protected.
