June 26: The WCB 2016 Annual Report is out. Key takeaway: A modest dip in time-loss injury rates failed to offset sharp rises in claims numbers. Of course, the relatively small numbers add a relative degree of volatility to trends and year-to-year to differences in PEI.

Metric 2016 2015
Time-loss claims 942 866
Total claims adjudicated 1,884 1,776
Lost time injury rate (per 100 workers) 1.77 1.79
