Interjurisdictional Agreement On Workers Compensation

Interjurisdictional Agreement on Workers Compensation (IJA)


A special agreement between the Canadian provincial workers compensation funds that allows many employers to report earnings and pay premium in the province in which they are domiciled for work being performed by their workers in another province as long as that province does not require assessment there. Normally when the other jurisdiction assesses the workers while in their jurisdiction, the province where the employer is domiciled will waive assessment for these workers for that work (no double assessment). The injured worker can choose to claim compensation in either the province where the employer is located or the province where the injury occurs.
