Rate consultation sessions

Join us, and other employers in your region, to learn more about the preliminary rates for your industry and what you can do to reduce injuries, claim costs, and your insurance rate.

This year's sessions

As part of our commitment to continue serving our stakeholders while reducing the potential spread of COVID-19, we hosted this year’s rate consultation sessions virtually on a secure online platform. The sessions included a 60-minute presentation, followed by a question and answer period.

The presentation topics included:

  • The financial state of the workers’ compensation system
  • Rate and classification changes
  • How you, as an employer, can influence your rates through improved health and safety and return-to-work activities

Watch the video of this year’s sessions (October 7, 2020). You can also download the slides from the session.

Resources to help you reduce your premium

While your base premium rate is set using the historical costs of injuries for your industry, you have the opportunity to earn a discount for your business by reducing your claim costs.

We offer tools and expert advice on how to do this through injury prevention, workplace safety, and disability management and return-to-work programs for injured workers. For best practices in injury prevention and injury management that could help you lower your costs, visit our industry health and safety pages.
