WSIB Now Extends To Cover Construction Business Owners. Did You Know It’s Mandatory?

Starting January 1, 2013, almost everyone in the construction industry will require mandatory WSIB coverage. Not just workers, but business owners too.

In addition to employees, the coverage will be extended to include:

  • Independent operators (new)
  • Sole proprietors (new)
  • Partners in partnerships (new)
  • Executive officers of corporations (new)

If you fall within one of the above, you will need to start reporting your own earnings and pay premiums beginning January 2013. Visit to find out more. A dedicated website setup by WSIB to provide detailed information about the new mandatory coverage.

If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.
