Workplace Injury Insurance

Most employers in Nova Scotia are required by law to register their business with WCB Nova Scotia. But, workplace injury insurance also provides peace of mind: it protects you against lawsuits resulting from workplace injuries and provides workers with benefits to cover medical expenses and wage loss in the event of a workplace injury.
