CPI Adjustment for Workers (March 9/20)

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

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 calculated by Statistics Canada to help offset cost of living expenses.

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