Generally, every workers’ compensation board in Canada requires out-of-province trucking firms to pay premiums for each driver who travels in or through their province or territory.
To simplify the payment of premiums, the Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada, in partnership with the Canadian workers’ compensation boards and commissions, have developed an interjurisdictional agreement, which includes the Alternative Assessment Procedure for Interjurisdictional Trucking (the AAP). With the AAP, the rights, benefits and protection that employers and workers receive in each province remain the same, but the payment of premiums is simplified.
Under the agreement, a trucking firm registers for workers’ compensation coverage in each province where their firm operates or has workers, but pays premiums only in the province(s) where their workers live and usually work.
The AAP is available to general trucking firms and to firms engaged in moving and storage. It does not apply to firms engaged in log hauling.
A newly registered employer, or an employer new to interjurisdictional trucking, may sign-up for the AAP at any time. Coverage will be effective as of the date WorkSafeBC received the AAP application, or the start date requested on the application form, whichever is later.
A registered employer with existing interjurisdictional trucking operations may only switch to the AAP at the beginning of each calendar year by submitting an application before February 28.
To sign-up for the AAP, send a completed Application for Alternative Assessment Procedure for Interjurisdictional Trucking to WorkSafeBC.
