How do I register with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)
Registration forms are available on the WSIB website at www.wsib.on.ca, 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.
