One of CIWAA’S goals is to have the provincial government re-open all WCB claims that were rejected due to an opinion by an independent medical consultant.  We are in the process of gathering information and would like to hear from anyone whose claim was rejected because of an opinion by an independent medical consultant.

Carol will respond to all emails on behalf of CIWAA. Your information will be very useful to us as we work together to change WCB laws for the better. Please state if it can be shared with others.

If you feel you were unfairly assessed by a doctor, you can complain to their College. For a medical doctor, the complaint must be sent to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (ACPSA). For a psychologist, the complaint must be sent to the College of Alberta Psychologists. Below is their contact information and link to the complaint page of their website. If you would like assistance completing these forms, please contact us.
