The purpose of Vocational Rehabilitation is to reintegrate a worker back into the workforce. An assessment is conducted to determine an individual's interests, aptitudes, physical abilities, and skills. The purpose of the assessment is to determine if a disabled worker may require assistance. The vocational assessments are conducted by the Rehabilitation Counsellor. A Vocational Rehabilitation Plan is developed from the assessment. The plan may involve job search, work assessment, training-on-the-job, or re-education for the disabled worker.
All claims decisions are appealable to the Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board.
