Today, March 6, 2018 I served my Application for Judicial Review - Writ of Mandamus on the WSIB (Ontario WCB) and the WSIAT (Ontario WCT). It is my hope that this may become a powerful legal tool for injured workers to ensure 'speedy determination and payment of benefits'. I will post my materials within the next few weeks on the 'my Story page' of the website. I will also keep you up to date here with the effectiveness of the application.
It may not work, but it is worth a try, after all we have to try something instead of nothing!
Today, February 6, 2018 exactly 21 years after my work injury, to the day,. The Court of Appeal for Ontario released their decision. My appeal was dismissed.
As a result I will be looking at applying to the Supreme Court of Canada to appeal the decision. To see the decision go to the Caselaw page
There is a recent appeal going before the Ontario Court of Appeal.
It involves three injured workers who were criminally charged by the WSIB (Ontario WCB)!
If you know of any other civil cases against a WCB, regardless of the province/state or country
I have setup a Blog to provide more current information for injured workers and those that help injured workers.
You can view it here:
Fairness, Decent hours for decent incomes, Paid sick days, Right to Organize, Respect at Work, Rules that protect everyone, & $15 minimum wage
For those injured workers in Alberta check out http://albertainjuredworkers.ca/ it maybe even more help for you
The WCB, WSIB , WorkSafe, or whatever they choose to call themselves is suppose to protect workers when the get hurt, but seemingly they are really protecting employers by preventing workers and their families their lawful right of action.
Well I beg you, I plead with you to, NEVER GIVE UP!
I am fighting the WCB, but all I need you to do is one simple thing FIGHTWCB!

Free legal Representation
If you are a victim of a workplace accident and can not afford legal representation
check out the advocate page which contains some advocates that offer free help like the OWA.
The reasoning behind the formation of the Workers Compensation Boards is to
compensate and take care of victims of workplace accidents when workers get hurt in workplace accidents.
In doing so, it is suppose to prevent financial hardship for: the worker who was injured, their family, and society.
Unfortunately, sometimes the WCBs don't always work,
this is where the FightWCB website comes in to help you fight back!
You may not have a WCB
In many jurisdictions they have changed their name of the WCB, to something else.
in Ontario their name is now WSIB,
In British Columbia their name is now WorkSafeBC,
In New Brunswick their name is now WorkSafeNB.
This site contains specific information for victims of workplace accidents to fight their
respective workers compensation boards in any Common law Country.
Some common law countries are: the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and others
There are several ways that people can fight their respective WCBs some of them are as follows:
Within the WCB system, Civil Court, Judicial Review, Criminal Court, and many more.
