Workers' Compensation

Students who participate in an unpaid work-based learning program, such as a practicum or internship, are eligible for workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is a collective liability no-fault protection plan for workers injured or killed by a chance event.

Benefits (including long-term benefits) may include some compensation for medical expenses, lost future wages, permanent functional impairment, and death.

The Workers’ Compensation Board has a memorandum with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education and has passed a policy under authority of The Workers’ Compensation Act, 1979.

Students participating in an unpaid work-based learning assignment need to fill out the Worker's Compensation Agreement form.
