Fair Practices Commission

If you're having problems with the WSIB then you should consider filing a complaint with the Fair Practices Commission. The Fair Practices Commission is the organizational ombudsman for the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board. They investigate complaints about the service you are receiving from the WSIB. It could be an issue concerning the length of time it is taking to issue a cheque or a decision, the attitude of a Board employee or a decision making process.

The Commission also tracks complaint trends, identifies systemic issues and recommends improvements to the WSIB. It's another voice for the stakeholders on major systemic problems with the WSIB system.

Filing a complaint with the Commission can be effective. If you're having difficulties with the WSIB look into the Fair Practices Commission you may be pleasantly surprised at the results you get from the WSIB.
