Advisor Office and Medical Panels Program

April 1, 2021

On April 1, 2021, as a result of amendments to the Workers’ Compensation Act, the Appeals Commission for Alberta Workers’ Compensation will take on responsibility for two independent and arm’s length programs within Alberta’s workers’ compensation system. Advocacy services previously offered by the Fair Practices Office will continue as a program called the Advisor Office for Alberta Workers’ Compensation. Medical panel services will continue as the Medical Panels Program for Alberta Workers’ Compensation.

There will be no delay or disruption of services, which will remain free-of-charge. For more information about the programs, please see the Advisor Office and Medical Panels Program websites. For more information about the steps we are taking to ensure independence, please see our Governance and Independence Framework.
