ITF (Industry Task Force) Association

Effecting positive change in Workers’ Compensation through the views of Alberta employers

 

The ITF (Industry Task Force) Association was incorporated under the Societies Act in 1999 and works collaboratively to effect positive change in programs, practices, policy and legislation by representing the views of Alberta employers who are members of the ITF Association on matters related to Workers’ Compensation in Alberta.  

Our membership includes a cross section of small, medium and large employers operating in a wide range of industry sectors in Alberta. In 2018, the annual premiums paid by member corporations or associations were in excess of 55% of the premiums collected by the Workers’ Compensation Board.  Salaries paid by ITF members represented over 46% of the total WCB insurable earnings in Alberta for 2018.
