from Government of Manitoba

"This legislation would be unique in Canada and would truly support workers who experience a traumatic event or events in the workplace that lead to PTSD," said Premier Selinger. "Under this new law, the Workers Compensation Board would presume their condition was caused by the job, making it much easier to access supports, treatment and compensation." more
