Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island

Work-Related Injury

Employers and workers should make every effort to create a safe workplace, but if a work-related injury or illness does occur, the WCB will provide the services and benefits needed to help workers recover and safely stay at work or return to work as quickly as possible.

If you are injured at work, you are responsible for:
  • Getting the health care you need as quickly as possible. Your employer is responsible for providing first aid and transportation to immediate health care if needed.
  • Telling your health care providers that your injury or illness is work-related
  • Reporting the injury or illness to your employer and to the WCB.
  • Providing the WCB with the information necessary to process your claim.
  • Following your health care provider's plan for treatment and recovery.
  • Keeping in contact with your employer and the WCB throughout your claim.
  • Working with your employer, your health care providers, and the WCB to develop a plan to stay at work or return to work in a timely and safe manner.
