We were going to list out all the stats for you in this post but the Association of Workers' Compensation Boards of Canada (AWCBC) has made these really nice infographics to display the numbers so we'd like to share those with you. You can find them on the AWCBC's website.
Below we also identify the provinces with the highest rates of injury and look at some statistics specific to the oil and gas industry.

Provincial Injury Rates
According to this report from the university of Regina, when looking at the five-year average of injuries and fatalities in provinces with over 100,000 workers Saskatchewan ranks highest (6.3 deaths per 100,000 workers) followed by Alberta (3.8 per 100,000) and Newfoundland and Labrador (3.2 per 100,000).
Since 2011, most jurisdictions have experienced declining injury fatality rates. However, a comparison of the average 2011-2013 rate to the average 2014-2016 rate revealed an 83% increase in New Brunswick’s rate and a 32% increase in Newfoundland and Labrador’s rate.
Among provinces with over 100,000 workers, Newfoundland and Labrador has the highest five-year average occupational disease fatality rate (8.3 deaths per 100,000 workers) followed by Nova Scotia (5.1 per 100,000), and Alberta and British Columbia (both 3.7 per 100,000).
Manitoba had the highest five-year average injury rate (3.10 injuries per 100 workers) followed by Saskatchewan (2.35 per 100), and British Columbia (2.27 per 100).

Alberta's oil and gas stats according to Enform show the provincial total cost of lost time injury claims.
