Government of New Brunswick


In New Brunswick, workers’ compensation is administered through a no-fault insurance system set up under the Workers’ Compensation Act. The system is designed to compensate injured workers and protect employers from being sued by workers who are injured on the job.


Employers having three or more workers, full or part-time, must register for coverage. When fewer than three workers are employed, voluntary coverage may be requested. Employers who register to cover their workers may apply for personal coverage for (i) a non-salaried officer of a limited or incorporated company and (ii) a proprietor, partners and spouses of a proprietor or partner.


New employers who qualify for mandatory coverage are required to register with WorkSafeNB within 15 days of the start of the business and must provide specific information about their operations and an estimate of the assessable earnings for the calendar year.
