How do I register with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)
Registration forms are available on the WSIB website at, and through its eRegistration service. You can also call the WSIB at 1-800-387-0750 to have one sent to you.

There currently are two types of registration processes depending on whether you are an employer, or an individual applying as an IO, a sole proprietor, a partner, or an executive officer of a corporation who does not work in the construction industry.

1. Employer registration
This process is for a business that hires one or more workers.

2. Optional insurance request/change
This is the voluntary registration process for IOs, sole proprietors, partners, and executive officers of a corporation who do not work in the construction industry. WSIB coverage is not automatically granted. The WSIB will decide whether an individual qualifies for optional insurance.
