Workers' Resource Centre


The Workers' Resource Centre (WRC) helps workers who live or work in Alberta to understand and access the rights and benefits they are entitled to under employment-related legislation in the province of Alberta. Services are available at no charge to clients, most of whom come from marginalized populations (immigrants, Temporary Foreign Workers, Aboriginal workers, persons with disabilities, youths, etc.). The WRC has three core programs: casework, public legal education and advocacy.

Our casework program provides workers with information and support related to:

• Employment Insurance

• Alberta Employment Standards

• Alberta Human Rights Act (employment-related discrimination)

• Alberta Workers' Compensation Act

• CPP disability

• employer short and long term disability

The WRC has helped workers become entitled to more than of $58,000,000 in benefits and unpaid earnings since 2004.
