The following excerpt is from Boyle v. Workers' Compensation Board (N.S.), 2004 NSCA 88 (CanLII):

Even when a statute does not expressly authorize an order for payment of interest, that power may be implicit if the statute authorizes a tribunal to issue a compensatory remedy: NSPSC v. NSGEU, 2004 NSCA 55, at paras. 30-32, 37-42 and cases there cited.
