National Work Injury, Disease and Fatality Statistics (NWISP) – Year At A Glance

The Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada produces this annual report, which provides national statistics on work-related Fatalities and Lost Time Claim compensation for injuries and diseases. These statistics reflect any WCB-accepted Fatality, Lost Time Claim for injury resulting from a work-related event or exposure to a noxious substance, or for a disease stemming from work-environment conditions.

To learn more about the AWCBC’s National Work Injury, Disease and Fatality Statistics (NWISP), please click here to download PDF Introduction: AWCBC’s National Work Injury, Disease and Fatality Statistics (NWISP).

Data should be read in conjunction with the ‘Terms and Conditions’, ‘Data Considerations’ and ‘Definitions’. For more details, click here. Please note that values of “X” indicate 3 claims or less. If a jurisdiction does not appear, there are no claims submitted for that jurisdiction yet. Publications detailing lost time claims are available from 1982. Fatality data is available from 1994.

The NWISP “Year at a Glance” aims to provide statistics to the public as they are available from AWCBC jurisdictions without waiting until all national data is received. For that reason, data may appear incomplete as not all jurisdictions will have yet had the opportunity to provide updated data to the AWCBC. The provided data may be restated.
 
2020 National Work Injury, Disease, and Fatality Statistics (NWISP)

The publication containing 2020 National Work Injury, Disease, and Fatality Statistics (NWISP) is not yet available. The Association publishes NWSIP data once all provincial and territorial data is received. Currently, data for Yukon is outstanding. However, the 2020 NWISP data minus Yukon’s numbers is available upon request and will be restated once Yukon data is received. Also available is the Association’s “Year at a Glance” report (see below) that contains all the 2020 data provided to date.
