Learn about the two options interjurisdictional trucking and transport firms have to report earnings and pay premiums, the requirements of the program and who is eligible to apply.
The Alternative Assessment Procedure (AAP) for the interjurisdictional trucking and transport industry was developed to make reporting of drivers’ earnings and the payment of premiums simpler.
Interjurisdictional trucking and transport firms have two options regarding reporting to the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB):
You must apply to take part in the AAP program. When your application is accepted, you will not have to prorate kilometres and pay premiums to the WCB in each province and/or territory in which your drivers travel. Under the AAP program, you only report earnings to the WCB(s) in the province or territory in which your drivers live. You will still need to register with the WCB in every province and/or territory in which your drivers travel, but you will not pay any premiums to these boards.
Your application must be submitted by Feb. 28 of the year the AAP is intended to begin or within 60 days of when you qualify for coverage.
ABC Trucking Ltd. is located in Saskatchewan and hauls freight from Saskatchewan to Alberta. All of the firm’s drivers live in Saskatchewan. ABC’s trucks drive 60 per cent of their kilometres in Saskatchewan and 40 per cent in Alberta.
