CPI adjustment for workers (Feb. 4/22)

For workers receiving regular monthly benefits, your February payment will include a one-time Consumer Price Index (CPI) benefit adjustment amount which covers the month of January.

When the CPI shows the cost of living in Nova Scotia has increased, WCB benefits are increased by one half of the CPI percentage increase, as directed by the Workers’ Compensation Act. We use the annual average CPI as calculated by Statistics Canada.
