Canada Pension Plan Cheques Rising 1.8 % for 2015 and Old Age Security Remaing the Same

Canada Pension Plan benefits are rising 1.8 per cent in the new year for people already receiving benefits.

Effective Jan. 1, 2015, the maximum CPP retirement benefit for new recipients age 65 will be $1,065 per month. The increase is calculated on the average yearly maximum pensionable earnings for the last five years.  The new CPP rates will be in effect until Dec. 31, 2015.

Old Age Security (OAS) benefits, which consist of the basic OAS pension, the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) and the Allowances, will remain the same for the first quarter (January to March) of 2015.

As of January 1, 2015, the basic OAS pension will stay at $563.74 per month. OAS benefits, like CPP benefits, are based on the consumer price index (CPI). But unlike CPP, which is reviewed annually, OAS rates are reviewed quarterly and revised as required to reflect increases in the cost of living.

Prevent Heat Stress at Work

Source: Workers Compensation Board of PEI

With the first heat wave of the summer in the forecast, the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) reminds all Islanders to take precautions to avoid heat stress at work.

Heat stress refers to a variety of heat-related disorders, such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke, which can lead to serious or even fatal injury.  Symptoms may include weakness, muscle pain, light-headedness, nausea and high body temperatures.  

Environmental hazards such as exposure to heat, high humidity and limited air flow can cause heat stress. Contributing factors may also include the worker’s hydration level, clothing, and physical exertion.  

“The best defense against heat stress is prevention,” said Bill Reid, Director of Occupational Health and Safety. “It is important for everyone in the workplace to be aware of the hazards, to take adequate precautions to control the risks and to recognize the signs of heat stress.”

 The WCB recommends the following to help reduce the risk of heat stress: 

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen.
  • Cover exposed skin with loose fitting, tightly woven clothing.
  • Have adequate ventilation in the workplace.
  • Take breaks in the shade or an air conditioned space, if possible.
  • Keep everyone safe by providing adequate supervision and using a buddy system to watch for signs of heat stress in co-workers. Early detection is critical.

If you experience the initial signs of heat stress, remove yourself from the hazard, drink water, monitor the symptoms and advise someone in case you need further assistance or medical treatment.

More information is available in the WCB's Guide to the Prevention of Heat Stress at Work.  To learn more about safety matters at work, visit the Safe Workplaces section of the WCB website or call  902-368-5680 or 1-800-237-5049.

PEI Leading in Temporary Foreign Worker Program in Atlantic Canada

The number of temporary foreign workers in Atlantic Canada tripled between 2005 and 2012 to reach 10,900 workers in December 2012 according to research by the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council. Prince Edward Island is leading the way in the number of temporary foreign workers:

  • 139 in 2005
  • 644 in 2009
  • 1,000+ in 2012

The largest increases in the number of temporary foreign workers have been in lower paying, lower skill occupations such as fish plant and food service workers. Recent and proposed changes to the temporary foreign worker program will make it more difficult for some Atlantic businesses to use the program. Pending further review, the food services sector is currently under a moratorium for access to the Temporary Foreign Worker program.

Minimum Wage Increase

The minimum wage in Prince Edward Island will be increased to $10.20 cents an hour as of June 1 and to $10.35 an hour as of October 1, says Environment, Labour and Justice Minister Janice Sherry.

“The new rates take into account both the interests of employers and employees,” said Minister Sherry. “As well, the increase reflects a stronger and more buoyant economy and greater confidence in our prospects as a province.”

The new rates were approved by the provincial cabinet based on an annual review and recommendation by the Employment Standards Board. The Board held consultations with employers and employees last fall.

The current minimum wage is $10 an hour. It has been in effect since April 1 of 2012. The new rates are in line with those of the other Atlantic provinces. The current rate in New Brunswick is $10 an hour, it is $10.40 in Nova Scotia for experienced workers and $9.90 for those lacking experience, and the rate in Newfoundland and Labrador will increase to $10.25 on October 1.

The minimum wage has increased from $7.50 an hour in 2007, up by 38 percent.

Talk about safety during Canadian Agricultural Safety Week

March 9-15, 2014 is Canadian Agricultural Safety Week, an annual event that raises awareness about the importance of farming safely. With this year’s theme, Let’s Talk About It, the Workers Compensation Board encourages farm employers and workers to initiate a conversation about safety hazards and ways to work safely.  

“Dialogue creates valuable opportunities to learn from one another,” said Nancy Guptill, Workers Compensation Board Chair. “With a topic as important as workplace safety, a simple conversation can mean the difference between getting hurt and making it home safely.”

 A new farming resource developed by the WCB can help to kick start the safety conversation. The guide, Safety Guidelines for Potato Producers, provides information to help farmers, workers and families to work safely.

 At this time of year, when farmers are planning for the upcoming season, the guidelines provide helpful information about equipment maintenance. The document is also a great starting point for training new workers who may not be familiar with safety hazards.  Important tips include:

  • Equip all machinery with the proper guarding.
  • Replace any guards that have been temporarily removed during maintenance.
  • Ensure all workers, including family members, have annual safety training. 
  • Turn off equipment before cleaning or servicing. 


If you would like more information about farm safety, please contact WCB Farm Safety Specialist, Tara Huestis, at 902-368-6562 or 1-800-237-5049. There are also a variety of workplace safety resources available in the Safe Workplaces section of the WCB website at

Improved food safety regulations to increase consumer protection

New food safety regulations will ensure Prince Edward Island stays current with national standards, says Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Heather Morrison.

 “Over the coming months, Prince Edward Island will be updating regulations to ensure the highest levels of food safety in food serving establishments,” said Dr. Morrison. “They will also make sure that the Chief Public Health Office has the ability to enforce safe food handling requirements.”

 The purpose of the food safety regulations is to ensure that food is properly stored, handled and served.

 Changes to the Eating Establishments and Licensed Premises Regulations are expected to include more training, written cleaning and sanitizing procedures, and food safety management plans. To help ensure compliance, the regulations provide for placing conditions on licences, and imposing suspensions and fines. National guidelines for water testing will be adopted for operators with private wells.


“The last major review of food safety regulations was more than 30 years ago. However over that time food safety standards have increased, along with the expectations of consumers,” said Dr. Morrison. “Islanders should be able to feel confident that the food they’re purchasing has been prepared properly. These changes reflect the best practices being used across Canada.”


The draft regulations can be viewed at Feedback can be sent Deadline for consultation is April 15, 2014.

Canada’s Premiers Achieve Improvements in the Renewal of Funding for Skills Training

Premiers are committed to creating good jobs and driving economic growth through a skilled and productive workforce, and providing Canadians support to contribute to Canada’s economic prosperity. By working together, Canada’s Premiers have achieved a modest number of changes to the federal government’s proposed Canada Job Grant* − changes which minimize the negative impact of the initial federal proposal. Although Premiers still share important concerns about the design of the Canada Job Grant, they are prepared to move ahead with implementation discussions on the basis of the compromise which has been worked out.

In response to provincial and territorial advocacy, the federal government has agreed to eliminate the cost-matching requirement for provinces and territories, allocate a greater proportion of the Labour Market Agreement for existing programming for vulnerable workers, and review the program by the end of 2015 which is a critical step to ensure it is meeting the needs of Canadians and employers.

Provinces and territories will now begin work to finalize the renewal of bilateral Labour Market Agreements.

While the federal government agreed to a number of changes to the proposed program, Premiers noted that there remain some significant, outstanding issues. There will be less federal funding available for existing, successful skills and training programs for our most vulnerable and unemployed than under the current program. As well, the proposed program may not be flexible enough to allow some employers, especially small and medium sized businesses, to participate. Premiers are concerned that if businesses are not able to use the Canada Job Grant, funding that would otherwise be going to organizations that provide employment supports to vulnerable Canadians would be lost.

Given the federal approach of negotiating a Canada-wide program through a series of bilateral agreements, Canada’s Premiers would expect a betterment clause in the agreements which will ensure that all provinces are able to offer similar programming in the implementation of the Canada Job Grant. Premiers encourage the federal government to collaborate with provinces and territories so as to ensure that effective programs will continue to benefit Canadians. Regarding Labour Market Development Agreements that the federal government has indicated it wants to discuss, Premiers agree it is essential that the federal government proceed by working collaboratively with provinces and territories. *Québec has already indicated that it intends to opt out of the Canada Job Grant initiative with full compensation.

Awareness is the first step to preventing Repetitive Strain Injuries

Every year, the last day in February is Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) Awareness Day. This February 28th, the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) encourages Islanders to take steps to avoid injury by recognizing the potential RSI hazards in their workplace.  

Repetitive strain injury is a term that describes disorders of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, most frequently of the upper extremities, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Tendonitis. Common causes of RSIs include frequent, forceful movements and activities with sustained awkward postures.

 “When a worker experiences a repetitive strain injury, the effects can be widespread,” said Nancy Guptill, Workers Compensation Board Chair.  “An RSI can result in unnecessary pain and suffering, disruption to work and home life and reduced productivity, all of which is preventable.”

To reduce the risk of repetitive strain, everyone in the workplace should be aware of the hazards, have the proper equipment to perform the work safely and be trained to prevent injury. Some of the tasks and factors that can put workers at risk of injury include: 

• Sustained awkward posture of arms, hands or wrists 
• Frequent difficult or forceful gripping
• Continuous work with hands above shoulders or far away from the body
• Excessive vibration from hand tools
• Prolonged exposure to cold temperatures without adequate protection
• Repeated lifting and carrying

Regulated Health Professions Act in effect


The Regulated Health Professions Act will help ensure safety and consistency in our Island health care system, says Minister of Health and Wellness Doug Currie.

“This legislation will ensure that designated health professions are meeting certain standards and levels of training,” said Minister Currie. “Our main priority is ensuring the safety of Islanders throughout the spectrum of health care services that are provided in our province.”

The Regulated Health Professions Act provides consistent licensing, complaint and discipline processes applicable to all designated health care professions. In addition, the legislation provides criteria for regulation, a formal application and assessment process for requests for regulation.

There are currently 16 regulated health professions in Prince Edward Island governed by 14 different statutes and regulations. These professions are self-regulated through a professional college or independent board. In addition, there are many unregulated health professions including, but not limited to, naturopathic doctors, massage therapists, and medical laboratory technologists who have shown interest in becoming regulated.

Under this new legislation, these unregulated health professions can apply to become regulated. Many professions who are currently regulated under stand-alone legislation have indicated their intention to seek designation under the Regulated Health Professions Act.

“The Province of Prince Edward Island values the hard work and expertise of our health care professionals and looks forward to working with them in the delivery of quality health care services for all Islanders,” said Minister Currie.

Workers Compensation Board Reduces Rates for Island Employers

The Workers Compensation Board (WCB) of Prince Edward Island is pleased to announce a seven cent reduction in its average assessment rate for 2014. Next year, Island employers will pay an average of $1.90 per $100 of payroll to fund the provincial workplace safety and compensation system, continuing the downward trend in WCB premiums since 2004.

The average rate reduction was a result of the WCB’s positive investment returns and stable financial position. The WCB’s fully-funded status has had a positive impact on the assessment revenue required to fund the system.  With the reduction in the average assessment rate, 85% of Island employers will experience a group rate decrease.

 “An effective workers compensation system balances the interests of workers and employers,” said Nancy Guptill, Workers Compensation Board Chair. “We know the system is working when we are able to enhance worker benefits while at the same time, keeping the system sustainable and affordable for the employers who fund it.” 

All Island employers will be advised of their individual assessment rates in December 2013, which are based on the claims cost experience and the risks of workplace injury in their industries.  For more information about WCB rates and ways to reduce costs through injury prevention and return to work programs, visit the WCB website at www. or contact the WCB Office at 902-368-5680 or 1-800-237-5049 (toll free in Atlantic Canada).

Canadian Agricultural Safety Week

March 10-16, 2013, is Canadian Agricultural Safety Week to raise awareness about the importance of safety matters in farm workplaces.  With the summer employment season just around the corner, the Workers Compensation Board (WCB) reminds all growers that there is no better time to develop a plan for farm safety.

Many farm employers will have workers who are new to the job this season, whose lack of familiarity with the workplace may increase their risk of workplace injury.  An effective farm safety training plan can help to reduce this risk. 

When developing training for farm workers, the WCB advises employers to:

• Bring every hazard to the workers’ attention.

• Use past incidents or “close calls” as learning opportunities.

• Identify any tasks, equipment, or areas of the operation that are off-limits to the worker or only authorized/trained workers are allowed to do and review the associated safe work practices.

• Discuss the safeguards in place to eliminate or minimize hazards.

• Ensure that all workers know what personal protective equipment (PPE) to use and how to use it.

• Have the worker perform tasks under the supervision of a trained, responsible person prior to attempting the work alone.

• Keep written records of the training workers receive.

The Farm Safety Code of Practice, which is available in the Safe Workplaces section of the WCB website, provides additional information about farm safety.

Charlottetown - The business community of Prince Edward Island recognizes the challenges of identifying and maintaining a healthy workforce, yet over eighty percent of these employers do not often have access to in-house human resource management expertise.  The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce has facilitated the development of an on-line Human Resources Toolkit to assist the business community with timely information to address a broad spectrum of human resource management matters.

With the new PEI HR Toolkit employers now have access to a comprehensive toolkit with new ideas and tips, practical guides, checklists, downloadable and customizable templates, and links to other relevant resources that will help find, keep and develop valued employees.  The new resource is available for viewing or for download online at

Cate Proctor, Executive Director of the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce, is pleased with the launch of the PEI HR Toolkit. “The HR Toolkit will help many small-to-medium sized businesses quickly access information relevant to their human resource needs through links, as well as content on processes and policies to help add efficiency to their operations. We feel employers will reference this valuable resource on a regular basis as it contains pertinent information on local human resource news, tools, and resources available.”

The PEI HR Toolkit was developed under a partnership with Skills PEI, Streamline Consulting, Results Marketing, other provincial Chambers of Commerce and the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce and funded in whole or part by the Canada-PEI Labour Market Development Agreement and/or the Labour Market Agreement.

The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization that represents the major voice of business in the greater Charlottetown area on economic development issues.
