    When working in other provinces, outside of your home province, is there a single source for when registration is required with that province’s WCB?

    I understand there are agreements between all jurisdictions but there appears to be a catch to that.
    For example.. NL requires (NL employee working out of province)
    Contact WorkplaceNL for Out-of-Province Worker’s Coverage – Advise WorkplaceNL of the names of the workers and the length of time that they are going to be working outside Newfoundland and Labrador so that compensation coverage (benefits only – not “statutory bar”) can be extended outside Newfoundland and Labrador for those workers.
    NL requires (out of province workers working in NL)
    Register with Out-of-Province Board/Commission. Contact should be made with the compensation board/commission of the jurisdiction in which the work is being done, if applicable, to find out if registration in that jurisdiction is mandatory. It also needs to be determined whether or not “statutory bar” is available for the employer and workers while working there.

    Then they get complicated like NB.
    NB requires (out of province workers working in NB)
    If the contractor you are dealing with is outside of New Brunswick, this contractor must register with WorkSafeNB if:
    > They have three or more workers; and
    > The duration of the job exceeds five days.
    If the contractor is not required to register, you will be responsible for their coverage, as noted in the Unregistered Contractor section (see above).

    I am hoping someone has built a matrix or that there is a table for WCB out-of-province work requirements.

    This is a great idea and the law isn’t exactly clear. We are adding this to our editorial calendar and will produce a know the laws matrix in the next 2 weeks.
