Most businesses in Canada that employ workers (including family members and sub-contractors) must register with the WSIB/WCB within 10 days of hiring their first full- or part-time worker. It's the law.

What You Get by Registering?
WSIB benefits replace the worker's right to sue the employer for similar benefits.
The WSIB generally does not consider who is at fault when determining benefits.
Insurance Benefits for Your Workers
WSIB insurance replaces lost earnings, covers health care costs resulting from work-related injuries and illnesses, and supports return to work.
and Training Programs
Workplace illness and injury doesn't just hurt your workers: it can deprive you of essential staff and can seriously affect your company's productivity. The WSIB and prevention partners provide numerous training and education programs that help you prevent injuries and illness before they cost you money.
in Returning Your Workers to the Job
Getting injured staff back on the job sooner means your business can return to full productivity more quickly. It also means your insurance claim will be smaller and your premiums may be reduced. The WSIB claims management team will help you ensure that your worker gets effective health care and gets back to work as soon as possible.
