eClearance

eClearance is the fastest, most efficient way to request a Clearance to confirm that you (or a business you’ve hired) are registered with the WSIB and that the account is in good standing.

Please note: Clearances issued on or after August 20, 2017 will be valid until February 19, 2018. As a result, you will not have to renew your Clearance until February 2018, instead of November 2017.

We are extending the Clearance validity period to support the upcoming changes related to the rate framework and the requirement to collect classification information from employers starting in September. However, your reporting and payment obligations do not change and you still need to report and pay your premiums on time. Questions? See eClearance FAQs.

Newly registered accounts

Most newly registered employers requiring a clearance certificate at the time of registration will need to make an initial advance payment of $250. This payment is applied to your WSIB account as a credit and will be applied towards your future premiums.

An advance payment is not new to the WSIB. Based on your feedback as of October 1, 2017, we have moved to a more consistent and transparent approach by requiring a standard amount of $250 for the advance payment.
