Manitoba has taken another step in revamping its Workers’ Compensation Act for the first time in almost 20 years.

The Workers Compensation Act Review Committee submitted its 118-page report to Nancy Allan, Manitoba’s Labour and Immigration Minister.

The report is based on public consultations on the act. The four-member committee accepted written submissions and held public meetings throughout the province in the spring and summer of 2004.
