Fair Practices Advocate width=
An independent office working to ensure fair practices for workers and employers at the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba

Our Role & Mandate

The Fair Practices Office 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.
