WCBA - Workers Compensation Board Alberta

The Government of Alberta has recently announced new measures to provide financial support to help employers through the challenges of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

These measures include a deferral of 2020 WCB premium payments for all private sector employers until 2021. When invoicing resumes in 2021, small and medium-sized employers (those with $10 million or less in insurable earnings) will only be required to pay 50 per cent of their 2020 premiums – the other 50 per cent will be paid by the Government of Alberta. More details can be found on their new employer fact sheet.
