Alberta producers, including pork producers, are required to provide Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) insurance and basic safety training to non-family employees, as outlined in Alberta’s Occupational Health & Safety Act.
Technical working groups were formed to advise the Government of Alberta on the development of its latest legislation. These groups met to develop recommendations on how worker protections should be implemented to meet the unique needs of the agriculture industry. The groups are made up of representatives from various sectors, including many varied voices from the agriculture industry.
