Like all Nova Scotians, WCB Nova Scotia is preparing for the impacts of Hurricane Fiona. As we monitor the situation, we would like to share some important information as it relates to our services.
According to reports by the Emergency Management Office, widespread and prolonged power outages are expected. In the event of a power outage at our offices, our online services will still be available to those with internet access, using either mobile or desktop (WCB Online and MyAccount). However, an extended power outage in both Halifax and Sydney may impact our phone systems.
Please watch this space, and our Twitter account, for service updates.
Working safely is always a priority, but we encourage everyone to take necessary precautions to prepare for Hurricane Fiona.
Our thanks and appreciation go out to all of those who are working to help keep us safe through the storm this weekend.
