Past compensation tables and cost of living allowances

Workers, employers, and self-employed people who need information on wage-loss benefits from more than a year ago can use our tables. The compensation tables go back to 2002. They were used to determine the approximate wage-loss benefits for the first 10 weeks of claims. The cost of living allowance table shows adjustments made since 2003.
