April 28th Day of Mourning Ceremony
INJURED WORKERS AND TAX PAYERS PLEASE COME TO REMEMBER THOSE THAT HAVE FALLEN AND THOSE THAT ARE FORCED TO LIVE IN TRAGEDY & CONTINUE TO SUFFER EACH DAY. THIS IS LIFE FOR A INJURED WORKER WHEN WCB SHIRKS THIER RESPONSIBLITY TO THOSE HURT AT WORK. LIGITIMATE CLAIMS ARE DENIED ON A HIRED WCB DOCTOR’S OPINION . INJURED WORKERS ARE PUT ON AISH PAID BY TAXPAYERS ALLOWING WCB ADMINISTRATION TO COLLECT BONUS’S WITH THE MONEY THEY SAVED BY KEEPING WORKERS INJURED & IN POVERTY. WE WANT TO STOP INJURED WORKERS TAKING THIER LIVES . THERE IS NO HOPE WHEN YOUR FUTURE WILL BE LIVED IN CONSTANT PAIN , DEPRESSION AND POVERTY . TO MANY INJURED WORKERS HAVE LOST THE WILL TO LIVE.
The cost to family’s of injured workers is not just monetary. Their children are forced to watch their hero’s suffer day in and day out and live in poverty . Not understanding that their parents only crime was going to work to support the family. The punishment does not fit the crime, the government can stop this abuse now.
A Injury To One Is An Injury To All! Please tell the government this abuse must stop NOW.
April 28th Day of Mourning Ceremony
Government of Alberta we have been ignored to long . WCB is not here to support injured workers. Their mandate is to pay big bucks for administration and buy opinions from doctors of WCB choosing. They are getting rich off injured workers backs . Justice Samuel Freedman exposed that the WCB is not working well for injured workers in 2001 and was shelved . This inquiry could end up on the same shelve. Every delay causes needless suffering to the children of injured workers whose claim was denied by a case manager that choose the paid for opinion. How does a case manger that has no medical experience , is not required to have any medical knowledge, can not pronounce your injury or disease know that the WCB paid opinion is right ? They don’t but if they were to adjudicate a injured workers claim on medical evidence , clinical evidence , medical experts and injured workers doctors reports they would not receive a bonus. WCB is the only insurance company allowed to reward monetarily administration and affiliates from the top down if they don’t provide compensation or help the disabled worker return to health.
Email if you can give your time, typist , delivery person, lets get serious! Injured Workers when writing in please state if your comment and exposing of the doctors and WCB employees names that are involved in your claim are to be posted on site.
If you would like to attend the meetings please email firstname.lastname@example.org with name and phone number. We will be sending a open letter to those that are in power and can make a difference. If you have had your claim denied by a opinion from a hired paper doctor and would like it looked into join CIWAA.
Will your doctors advocate and stand up for themselves and you their patient? We will be releasing the reports of certain doctors WCB hires to give opinions that harm injured workers , displace Alberta doctors and go against clinical evidence , treating doctors and medical evidence. CIWAA has been offered some space to share and compare paper doctors reports . We will be following the Ontario Injured Workers Platform which equates to Injured workers and Alberta Doctors working together to stop WCB paying billions for opinions that hurt , slander and force injured workers into poverty. These doctors continue to make up opinions , make up diagnosis that are not medically possible, refuse treating doctors advise all for personal monetary gain.
This inhumane treatment towards workers who have been hurt on the job in Alberta must be looked into and stopped. Those responsible must be held accountable. Why is it ok for white collared workers to hurt, lie, slander, make up , miss represent , commit fraud , take peoples dignity and humane rights away on a daily basis , harm and some times put to death workers in Alberta for a big Pay check? Why is this ok? Why dont these doctors WCB chooses to pay for them to harm and hurt Alberta workers not have to suffer any consequences. Why does the government and law protect them? That is not what Meredith meant.
TIME TO GET OUT THERE AND GET NOTICED, PLEASE JOIN US. Lets share these paid doctor reports with the NDP and ask for their help to stop allowing WCB to play GOD with Alberta Injured Workers!
Ontario is way ahead of us lets catch up

- Disregard for the medical opinion of doctors treating injured workers;
- Examples of the board forcing workers back to work against the advice of their physician or psychologist;
- Overemphasis on injured workers’ pre-existing conditions for the purpose of rejecting, limiting, or prematurely cutting off workers’ claims;
- Approval for medical services taking months;
- Insufficient physiological or physiotherapy sessions for injured workers approved for benefits.
It has been suggested that you can sue your case manager for the treatment or lack of treatment towards you after your injury. Has your case manager adjudicated your claim on a paid for doc in the box opinion? If so please continue to share your file with doctors name and case manager’s , we have found it is the same doctors , making the same opinions which in many cases go against medical science , treating physicians and medical evidence. Let us take this information to the Premiere of Alberta so she can make justice happen. If you would like to participate all you need to do is send in doctors name, your name and case managers and you will be contacted by a CIWAA volunteer. CIWWA members we must continue to trust in Rachel Notley as we know she has been working to bring justice to Injured Workers long before May 5, 2015 . We have not been forgotten , soon we will know her plans. Support NDP on February 9th, 2016 .
Lets show the NDP Party were ready for JUSTICE! Truth to Power ! we never gave up and heard every word and acted on those words . The NDP party told people of Alberta the changes they would make if they were in power. We the people of Alberta helped make that happen. Were Ready every day these changes are delayed another worker and their family’s suffer needlessly. Time is of the essence. We are calling for all injured workers, their family’s, friends, workers, taxpayers and supporters to print the petition below gather those signatures so we can put it to work and be ready for Premiere Notley to change that shitty ass legislation .
We are in the process of getting are website up to-date. To all injured workers we would like to express our sincere thanks to all who got involved on May5, 2015 in ending the PC dynasty. With the new Government firmly in place now is the time to Rally for real change to the WCB and gain natural justice for all Injured Workers across Alberta. Our activity is picking up again to have our petition for Justice for Injured Workers presented to Premiere Rachel Notley & tabled in the Legislature and create the change’s needed. Workers medical injuries , adjudicated on a paid opinion must stop, all injuries must require medical evidence.
Billions for Opinions : causes Harm! to Injure Workers, their family’s, friends and Tax Payers. A Medical practitioner’s OATH : FIRST DO NO HARM ……….. The need for physicians to make a formal warrant of diligent, moral, and ethical conduct in the service of Injured Workers may be stronger than ever.
Compensation would help family’s of those injured workers living in 24 hours of constant pain because they were refused medical help from experts. Injured workers can not prove their injury when medical evidence , clinical evidence, expert medical reports are refused by WCB administration. Injured workers gave up the right to sue the employer when injured at work. WCB was suppose to look after the well being of injured workers. Injured workers with permanent injuries , chronic pain and marked life disruption are left to fend for themselves or seek help from taxpayer funded programs. Legislation , the Act and policy’s are not followed by WCB Alberta. There is no watch dog or consequences when the above is broken every day. Our government can not be arms length they are stake holders in WCB . Long term claims must be reviewed , how much suffering must a injured worker endure ? before this abuse stops.
We are pleased to share that 201 6 brings with it many new and important changes to C.I.W.A. A. These changes reflect our continued efforts to support and advocate on behalf of injured workers throughout Canada and to actively pursue the rights of those workers to government lawmakers. Every day is hard for those that suffer , we call on our Premiere not to delay Justice any longer. Gather those signatures put truth to Power. With Regards CIWWA Board Members As Alberta’s economic prosperity propels many forward, many more are sacrificed for the lowest corporate WCB premiums in Canada.
