Mandatory WSIB Coverage in the Construction Industry

The Ontario government has changed the law to expand coverage in the construction sector. The new rules began on January 1, 2013

WSIB coverage is mandatory for the following people who carry on a business in construction:

  • independent operators,
  • sole proprietors,
  • partners in partnerships and
  • executive officers in corporations.

At Skilled Trades Agency, we cover the burden of paying our temporary staff WSIB, EI, CPP, EHT, Vacation Pay and Statutory Holiday Pay.

We provide our clients with the peace of mind knowing that they are getting qualified workers, on their terms, all while making the process as easy as possible.
