Workers' Compensation Board Research Programs

Our research program encourages scientific exploration into topics applicable to workers' compensation. We provide funding to high-quality research projects which address some of the pressing issues we face: obtaining optimal clinical and return-to-work outcomes, exploring safety incentives and their role in reducing claims, and improving the efficiency, effectiveness and fairness of claims management and the workers' compensation system. In addition to these priorities, we may at times request research proposals to address specific areas of interest. Grants are made available to researchers in many different disciplines.
