The WSIB had the opportunity to review two recent Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT) decisions pertaining to cost relief for third party motor vehicle accidents occurring outside of Ontario. While the WSIB maintains that the scope of its policy was always meant to be the province of Ontario, it is agreed that complete clarity on this point would have been helpful to employers.
As a result of its review of the WSIAT decisions, the WSIB will reconsider decisions made prior to November 19, 2014 with respect to claims for motor vehicle collisions outside of Ontario.
If your firm has had a motor vehicle accident (MVA) Cost Relief application declined due to the incident occurring outside of Ontario before November of 2014, you can contact WSIB to seek reconsideration of the decision.
