Training and skills development

89.5% of workers agree their case manager does a good job of involving them in planning their care and return to work.

The best plans are those that reflect your needs, your input and your goals.

We want to help you recover and return to work so you can get back to your normal life and independence. In helping you develop a good return-to-work plan, we are committed to making every reasonable effort to help you succeed.

There are many ways we can help you return to work. We can provide:

  • Full financial support while you actively search for a suitable position.
  • Coaching and support during your active job search.
  • Sponsorship of part-time, short-term, or full-time academic programs.
  • Sponsorship of training-on-the-job programs with your existing or a new employer.
  • Wage loss top up benefits if you are unable to secure a position that pays the same amount you were making at the time of your accident as a result of your injury or illness.

Our first focus is to help you return to your employer. Additional employment services depend on the severity of your injury/illness as well as the impact it has on your ability to return to your job and income.

If you are not able to return to your date-of-accident job or employer and a job change is needed, we can help you. Your case manager will talk to you about your options and opportunities; and may offer a referral to a contracted service provider to assess what services you need to help you get back to work. We offer financial support for you.

We offer financial support for you. While you are exploring your new future, you are entitled to wage replacement benefits—equivalent to your full compensation rate—until you complete the services you need to get back to work.

We want to help you succeed. Your case manager will be happy to answer any questions you have about employment services you may be eligible for.
