For calculation examples, labour percentage and rates, refer to the 2011 Assessment Rates.  For more information, refer to the Coverage for Contract Labour fact sheet.

2020 Surplus Distribution FAQ

The Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba (WCB) maintains a reserve fund to protect employers and workers while ensuring a stable workers compensation system. This reserve fund is currently higher than the target set in our funding policy. As a result, in May of 2020, we are distributing surplus funds to employers, whose premiums fund the workers compensation system.

Production Companies

Workers compensation coverage is available for everyone associated with a video production company. Production companies are required to purchase WCB coverage for all of their workers. You may also purchase coverage for entertainers (anyone who works in front of the camera) and independent contractors.

WCB coverage provides benefits for people who are hurt at work and protects you from lawsuits in the event of an injury.
