Discussion paper - Bill 23 – Retirement Age Determinations
On August 14, 2020, the Workers Compensation Amendment Act, 2020 (Bill 23) came into effect. Under Bill 23, 34 legislative amendments were made to the Workers Compensation Act. One of these legislative amendments concerns retirement age determinations and came into effect on January 1, 2021.
On December 9, 2020, the Board of Directors approved changes to three policies in the Rehabilitation Services & Claims Manual, Volume II to ensure policy is consistent with the Bill 23 amendments regarding retirement age determinations. These policy changes became effective January 1, 2021.
Our Policy, Regulation and Research Division is now releasing a discussion paper with options on these newly revised policies to identify whether further policy changes are necessary. You’re invited to provide feedback on the options until 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 16, 2021.
