On August 5, 2023, in accordance with s. 162 of the Workers' Compensation Act, 2013 (the Act) the Government of Saskatchewan appointed a Committee of Review (COR) "to review and report on all matters concerning [the] Act, the regulations, and the administration of [the] Act and the regulations".
The COR submitted its report to the government in August 2022, and the government made the report public on November 22, 2022.
In a letter to SEIU-West President Barbara Cape dated November 22, 2022, the Honourable Don Morgan, Minister of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, invited SEIU-West to "provide feedback" on the COR report, specifically on the report's "legislative recommendations", i.e. those that in the government's view would require amendments to the Act.
Our response is not confined to the Minister's short list of recommendations, for in our view many of the other recommendations cannot be meaningfully implemented without additional changes to the Act.
