Business owners: Prepare for upcoming changes to your WSIB premium rate
Learn about new rate framework and premiums
You're invited to attend an information session, "Business owners: Prepare for upcoming changes to your WSIB premium rate," on Wednesday, June 12, in Timmins.
On January 1, 2020, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) will transition to a more clear and transparent method of premium rate setting for almost 300,000 businesses across Ontario. The WSIB is moving from its current classification structure to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). NAICS is already used by Statistics Canada, the Canada Revenue Agency and is a North American standard. The new rate framework will help simplify and streamline industry classifications from 155 rate groups down to just 34 classes and subclasses.
