Saskatchewan's workers' compensation rates should remain the same in 2007, according to the province's Workers' Compensation Board (WCB).

The board is proposing to hold employer premium rates at the average 2006 level of $1.84 per $100 of payroll.

Under the proposal, approximately two-thirds of the 33,000 WCB-registered employers would see premiums go down or stay the same in 2007.
