WCB Nova Scotia launches new Strategic Plan with commitment to protect more (Mar. 7/24)


(Halifax, NS)  – With new leadership, a new vision and improving and much more financial stability than ever before, WCB Nova Scotia is setting out to protect more Nova Scotians and more workplaces through a bold, ambitious and optimistic strategic plan that aims to become one of the top-performing WCBs in Canada by 2030.

WCB Nova Scotia’s vision is founded on three main pillars: Preventing workplace injury, supporting safe and healthy return to work when injury does occur, and providing exceptional service.

The WCB says achieving the ambitious goals under each pillar will be enabled by several key principles. These include enabling and supporting its own workforce, a much more efficient use of technology, approaches that are defined by diversity, inclusion and accessibility, and strategic outreach and engagement of Nova Scotia’s many valuable voices in workers’ compensation and workplace safety.

And, the WCB says, when it’s all accomplished, it will support a much-improved overall legislative, policy and appeal framework – and it will lead to a new perceived value in the WCB.
