The Ontario government is launching a review of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) to ensure workers and their families remain supported and protected in the workplace. The review will provide the government with new information regarding the board’s operations and how it compares to industry best practices.
Specifically, the operational review will focus on:
Financial Oversight: sustainability of the WSIB insurance fund and controls over it
Administration: effectiveness of the current WSIB governance and executive management structure
Efficiency: the cost-efficiency and effectiveness of operations, including comparisons to competing jurisdictions and private sector insurers
