WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board)
Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is the insurance system in Ontario that provides benefits and services to workers who have been injured at work or who have work-related diseases. This system is a “no-fault” situation meaning workers do not have to prove that their employer was to blame for their injury or illness in order to collect the benefits. However, there still needs to be proof that the injury or illness was work-related. Of course, nobody should be hurt on the job, but if it does happen, WSIB will provide the care and support you need to recover and safely return to work, even if you already have insurance coverage.
