I’m writing to share some exciting news about changes to our employer registration process.
Starting today, employers in Nova Scotia seeking workplace injury insurance coverage will be able to apply for coverage online with the Workers’ Compensation Board of Nova Scotia through the WCB website. This includes regular employer coverage, voluntary coverage and special protection coverage. It’s one example of how we’re continuing to evolve to meet the changing needs of the people we serve.
Through the online employer registration form, employers will be able to apply for coverage quickly and easily. Previously, employers had to complete a print form and mail or fax the registration. Starting mid-February, employers will be able to register online and immediately receive a confirmation email including useful links and information about health and safety.
Employers and third-party providers who register employers for WCB coverage are asked to discard existing print copies of the WCB employer registration form and move to online registration starting February 17. In-person and mail/fax options will still be available for employers who cannot register online by contacting the WCB at 1-877-211-9267.
