Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission Announces New Workers’ Advisor

Today, the Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) welcomes the appointment of Maia Lepage as the new Worker’s Advisor for the Northwest Territories & Nunavut.

Appointed by the Northwest Territories Minister Responsible for the WSCC, the Honourable Alfred Moses, Ms. Lepage begins her three-year term as an advocate for injured workers.

The Workers’ Advisor acts independently and impartially from the WSCC, providing a range of supports and assistance to injured workers and their family members, for example:

  • Explaining the WSCC process and decisions;
  • Helping clients communicate with the WSCC;
  • Reviewing file evidence and explaining what has happened to-date or helping decide if more information is necessary to support their case;
  • Helping prepare and present cases to all WSCC decision-making levels; and
  • Helping to find other community services that might be of assistance.
