Every year, as set out in the Workers’ Compensation Act, some WCB benefits are increased by one half of the Consumer Price Index percentage increase, using the annual CPI calculated by Statistics Canada.
For some workers and their families receiving a regular monthly benefit, the CPI adjustment for 2020 will appear on the March monthly payment. In previous years, it had appeared on the February payment.

If you have any questions about your benefits, please contact your case worker.
