WSCC NWT & Nunavut employer annual payroll estimate due February 28th

Workers' Safety and Compensation Commission of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut (WSCC) requires employers to report payroll figures annually.

Report your payroll by using WSCC Connect.

This information is required by February 28. Failure to report by the due date results in penalties.

Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board will multiply your payroll estimate by your firm’s premium rate to determine your premium.

Information needed to complete your Annual Payroll Estimate includes:

  • 2016 financial records, T-4 and/or T-4A summaries
  • Records of amounts paid for regular, contract or casual labour in 2016
  • Other records you need to estimate your 2017 payroll
  • WSCC Account Number
  • Date your workers were (or will be) hired


Mark your calendar to periodically review your payroll throughout the year. Employers must revise their estimate when it no longer reflects the amount they expect to pay to workers for the year. Whether adjusting for an increase or a decrease in payroll compared to the estimated amount, it is important to inform the WSCC of any changes to your payroll in order to avoid a penalty. If your payroll figures have changed, you can notify the WSCC by submitting a Payroll Revision form.
