Patterson Review Update

COCA is one of 46 associations who signed an Employer Community Submission the Workers Compensation Board Review.  Many of our Association members are also signatories.

  • The letter has been sent to the Reviewer, Janet Patterson, with a cc to Premier Horgan, Deputy Deputy Ministers  Don Wright, Trevor Hughes, and Fazil Mihlar; Leader of the Opposition Andrew Wilkinson; and Leader of the Green Party Andrew Weaver. 
  • The main message of the letter is “the Employer Community has lost confidence that the Review can be conducted in an “independent, impartial and balanced manner”. Accordingly, we have reached the decision to not participate any further in any aspect of the Review process. “
  • The letter and a community statement have been posted today in the COCA Member’s Area, along with a response from Ms. Patterson.
