Responsibilities of the Ministry of Labour
The Ministry is responsible for the following agencies:
- Alberta Labour Relations Board (ALRB)is an independent and impartial tribunal. The ALRB is accountable for administering, interpreting and enforcing Alberta’s labour laws.
- Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB)is a separate entity accountable to the Minister. The WCB is responsible for administering Alberta’s workers’ compensation system and delivering workers’ compensation services to employees and employers in the province.
- Appeals Commission for Alberta Workers’ Compensationis the final level of appeal for workers and employers who disagree with a WCB decision.
Together, these agencies strive to protect workers and their rights. Each agency is responsible for administering and enforcing legislation, education, and a compliance system. Each agency must align with both the strategic direction of the Ministry of Labour and the Government of Alberta.
