Effective Jan. 1, 2016, waged farm workers in Alberta are protected under the workers' compensation system. If you receive salary or wages for your work on the farm, and you are injured at work, you will have access to the benefits and services available under the Workers' Compensation Act (e.g., replacing lost wages, and medical and rehabilitation support).
