NEW. We have forms to download right here. And for other forms we have links at the WCB.

In order to provide service, the Office of the Worker Counsellor requires your signed authorization. This Authorization of Representative form allows us to open a file and to speak with the Workers Compensation Board about your situation.

You may return this form to us by:

In order to ensure that you have the latest WCB forms, we are no longer storing them for your download. We are linking directly to the Workers’ Compensation Board.
This link –> Worker Forms at will take you to a page with all Workers’ Compensation Forms that might be needed by a worker, choose the specific form you need.

However, if that link doesn’t work, all necessary forms can be found by this step by step method:

  • Go to the Workers’ Compensation Board in Nova Scotia website.
  • Click on “Forms”
  • Click on “Worker”
  • Click the specific form you require.

Some forms can be filled out on screen, on your computer.

Some must be printed and signed with your signature. Those forms must be faxed or mailed, or delivered to the WCB.

If you do not have a printer, forms can be mailed to you, or picked up from a location near you. For example MLA offices either already have WCB worker forms for you to use, or those offices can download and print them for you. NOTE MLA offices may also be able to fax a WCB form that requires a signature, to the WCB for you.

If you have any difficulty with any step in this process, please give us a call or contact us.
