Our Role & Mandate
The Fair Practices Advocate (FPA) is an independent office that works to ensure fair practices at the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba (WCB).
We act as an ombudsman for injured workers, their dependents, and employers to resolve issues they may have with the WCB, while also helping the WCB improve its quality of service.
Three main principles guide our work
We review all issues impartially and make recommendations that promote fair practice.
All inquiries that we receive are confidential, unless an intervention is requested
We serve injured workers, employers, and the WCB, but work independently in the interest of fairness.
