About the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Tribunal
The Northwest Territories & Nunavut Workers’ Compensation Appeals Tribunal is independent and is not part of the Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission. Before April 1, 2008, the Commission was called the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB). The Tribunal hears appeals of decisions made by the Commission’s Review Committee.
The Tribunal must follow the Workers’ Compensation Acts of both the Northwest Territories and Nunavut and the Commission’s Policies.
