March 15, 2016

The WCB is pleased to announce the release of their 2016 – 2018 Strategic Plan.  The plan was built upon a foundation of research, consultation and partnership with stakeholders to better meet the safety and compensation needs of Island workplaces.


“The Board would like to thank everyone who contributed to the development of our plan,” said Stuart Affleck, WCB Board Chair.  “Our ultimate goal is to ensure that all workplaces are safe, workplace injuries are eliminated and each client experience is one of excellence. Guided by this plan, we will make safety a priority in all workplaces and reduce the impact of workplace injury through safe and timely return to work efforts.”


The 2016-2018 Strategic Plan is based on the WCB’s renewed mission, vision and values, and focuses on six strategic themes:


  • Enhancing PEI’s Workplace Safety Culture
  • Improving Return to Work Outcomes
  • Ensuring Financial Sustainability
  • Strengthening Engagement and Partnerships
  • Providing Continued Service Excellence
  • Investing in Our Organization


 “Our Strategic Plan provides the direction for our priorities and maps the future course for our organization and the work we do on behalf of our stakeholders,” said Luanne Gallant, Acting CEO for the Workers Compensation Board. “Our environment is always changing and we believe that our Strategic Plan must be proactive and informed, and provide a clear picture of emerging trends in the workplace.”
