WSIB

Overview

Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is an Agency of the Government of Ontario responsible for the administration of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA)and its regulations.

It provides income replacement, health care, medical rehabilitation, disability pensions, return to work and labour market re-entry services to workers in certain industries identified in the Act who become injured while at work or sick due to workplace causes.  It also provides death benefits to surviving dependents of workers who are killed in the course of their work.

Workplace safety is a universal responsibility shared equally by workers and employers and COCA and its members are committed partners with the Ministry of Labour and the WSIB.
