WSIB rate review

The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) has launched a rate review process with the goal of moving towards an NAICS (North American Industrial Classification System).

This issue is a big deal for builders. Here’s why: this will potentially influence how you pay your rates over the next 10-20 years.

Proposed WSIB goals include the creation of a system which allows for easier administration for all parties and more predictable premiums for employers. An overview of the Proposed Preliminary Rate Framework can be found here.

Here is a short list of items home builders need to know:

- The formal process has just commenced with the release of five technical papers, which can all be found on the WSIB Rate Review website.

- RESCON has attended and will continue to attend stakeholder meetings with the WSIB, participate in technical sessions and provide updates.

- Individual employers are permitted and encouraged to provide feedback on the new proposed system and can do so by contacting the WSIB directly or by coordinating with RESCON.

For more information, please contact Andrew Pariser at or at 416-970-7665.
