For accidents on or after January 1, 1992 to December 31, 2005.

Policy Purpose

For accidents on or after January 1, 1992, The Workers Compensation Act (the Act) states that a worker shall not receive more than 90% of his/her actual loss of earning capacity. This is the case even if the payment above the 90% level comes from a source other than the WCB (ie., a "collateral benefit"). However, the Act does allow payment in excess of 90% of the actual loss of earning capacity under very specific circumstances.
