February 3, 2017:

We would like to express our sincere thanks to all the Injured Workers who took the time to respond to the WCB review. Meetings are ongoing and as of yet we have no concrete progress to report though the idea of a Worker Task Force has been talked about a lot.

Once the meetings have concluded and we are sure of the direction the Government is going to take we will have an opportunity to join in with our recommendations.

 Your stories provided the human element that was missing on so many of these WCB claims and for your input and support in the {be human campaign} we are truly grateful.

 Good work to all who spent the time to tell their stories. The hope is every injured worker comes forward and is allowed to be interviewed regarding life after injury.

Please continue to have your doctor advocate for you and if they are willing to be interviewed by a reporter for a major news station they can send their contact information to
