The Workers' Advisers Office is seeking accomplished individuals dedicated to helping injured workers and their dependents seeking compensation under the Workers Compensation Act. Ideal candidates will have experience in representing clients, applied knowledge of administrative law, and highly-developed analytical, communication and interpersonal skills. 

As a Workers' Adviser you will provide expert, independent advice to injured workers regarding the interpretation of the Workers Compensation Act, its Regulations, Policies and Guidelines.
