Employer Payment Information
Due to COVID-19, WSCC has put in place
financial relief measures for employers
by extending payment deadlines to August 1, 2020 and suspending late payment interest charges. Employers will receive a revised payment schedule with their next billing statement.
We urge all employers who do not need the deadline extension to continue with their planned payment schedule by contacting WSCC Employer Payments toll-free at 844 238-5008.

WSCC has added a
COVID-19 Resources page
to provide information that all employers should use, together with their workers, to assess the risks and put controls in place at their workplaces. These resources will continue to be updated as they become available.
Workers and employers with questions or concerns about workplace health and safety during the time of COVID-19 can contact the WSCC by emailing
or calling 1 (800) 661-0792.
You'll be able to speak to a OHS inspector to get answers to your questions, and if you need more assistance, a OHS inspector will be assigned to help you assess the health and safety risk at your workplace.
You can also submit a Report of Unsafe Work online through
Mine Rescue and the Miners Picnic
The 2020 Mine Rescue Competition and Miners Picnic has been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Mine rescue competitions are a way to practice life-saving skills. They allow teams to learn from one another, share best practices and new industry equipment, and most importantly, help keep our workplaces safer.
We look forward to welcoming the teams, organizers, volunteers, sponsors, event partners and spectators back to Yellowknife in 2021 for the 63rd Annual Mine Rescue Competition.
