The CIWS is collecting evidence from injured workers about their experiences with workers compensation boards across Canada.
The CIWS is no longer accepting story submissions.

We are compiling anonymous evidence from injured workers about any abuses they have experienced by workers compensation systems across Canada. We do not handle individual cases but will use your info to compile a list of WCB wrongdoing.

This will be done anonymously. We will NOT reveal your identity without your express permission.


* * * Please do not write asking for advice with your individual claim because the CIWS is made up of injured workers just like yourself and therefore, we do not have the resources to help all injured workers with their individual cases.

Thank you for your understanding.

But for peer-to-peer support, you can register at the Community of Injured Workers in Canada where other injured workers may have advice for you or experience with your specific situation in your province.

We would like to hear the stories of all injured workers in Canada.
