Compensation-Related Maximum Wage Rates

Current Maximum Wage Rates

Section 209 of the Workers Compensation Act (“Act”) requires WorkSafeBC to determine the maximum wage rate to be applicable for the following calendar year, in order to determine the amount of a worker’s average earnings, for the purpose of determining the amount of compensation payable to an injured or disabled worker, or the worker's dependants.

The current maximum wage rate, effective January 1, 2021, is $100,000 (as a result of Bill 23 becoming law). The maximum wage rate for 2022, effective January 1, 2022, is $108,400.
