The Workers Compensation Board of PEI is asking for feedback on proposed amendments to the Workers Compensation Act and General Regulations.
These proposed amendments will:
• Enhance the current benefit rate for WCB claimants.
• Increase the current Consumer Price Index (CPI) cap on annual cost of living increases for Extended Wage Loss (EWL), pension and survivor benefits recipients.
• Adjust the current maximum assessable earnings level to better reflect current average wages in PEI.
• Increase lump sum and burial expense benefits paid as a result of a workplace fatality.
You can find the current legislation and proposed amendments at http://www.wcb.pe.ca/Information/LegislativeReview. If you wish to provide feedback, please provide your written submissions online prior to July 17, 2022.
You may also submit feedback by mail or email to:

In addition to requesting feedback from individuals, the Chamber will be taking time to review and respond to the draft amendments on behalf of its Members.
