WSIB stands for Workplace Safety & Insurance Board. The WSIB is an Ontario government agency where employers contribute to a province-wide insurance fund.
Injured workers are compensated by the WSIB no matter who is at fault, the employer, the employee or someone else. The main focus of the WSIB system is to get the injured worker back to his or her work as soon as practicable. The worker and the employer must cooperate towards this goal.
Most businesses in Ontario must register with the WSIB within 10 days of hiring their first worker. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not work in the CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY you are not automatically eligible for WSIB coverage and you may apply for Optional Insurance.
