Personal Optional Coverage

Publication Date: 
January 06 / 2015

Most workers automatically receive coverage through the Workers Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut through their employers. If they get hurt at work, or become sick because of work, we provide benefits for them. People who do not receive coverage by the WSCC can buy Personal Optional Coverage, to get the same benefits as other workers.
