Yellowknife, NT (November 25, 2021) – The Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut (WSCC) has announced that the average employer assessment rate or base rate will remain at the same level as last year. 

In 2022, the average rate will hold steady for the second year in a row at $2.40 per $100 of assessable payroll. This is the base rate the WSCC uses as the starting point when setting individual subclass rates.
