About the Tribunal

The Workers’ Compensation Appeals Tribunal’s primary responsibility is to provide timely, fair, consistent, and impartial decisions when resolving appeals of decisions rendered by WorkSafeNB.

WCAT is a quasi-judicial administrative tribunal. It is an independent group of qualified New Brunswickers who operate separate from the Government of New Brunswick and WorkSafeNB.

Under the legislative authority of the Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission and Workers’ Compensation Appeals Tribunal Act, WCAT is mandated to hear appeals under this Act, the Workers' Compensation Act, the Firefighters' Compensation Act, and the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

All decisions, rulings, and orders of WCAT are final.
