WCB – Premium relief for employers

In March 2020 the Alberta government announced new measures to provide immediate financial support to private sector employers during the COVID-19 outbreak: • All private sector employers will have their 2020 WCB premiums deferred to 2021. • When we resume invoicing for 2020 premiums in 2021, small- and medium-sized private sector employers will have 50 per cent of their 2020 premiums waived.

No interest charges will be applied for unpaid 2020 premiums.
