All employers covered by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act have to register and report their payroll information accurately. Employers who register with the WSIB and fulfill their reporting obligations are helping to make sure our programs are delivered consistently and fairly for everyone.
Since early 2004, we’ve been working with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to make sure employers are meeting their WSIB obligations. We’ve been exchanging business information to identify potential registration, non-compliance, and payroll reporting issues; and we’ve been following up with employers to make sure our records are accurate.
CRA continues to work with us to develop our collaborative activities, which already include exchange of registration and employer summary payroll information.
By exchanging information with the CRA, the WSIB is making the system fairer and more financially sustainable.
