As per an UPDATE received from WSIB on August 11, 2020
As per an UPDATE received from WSIB on August 11, 2020

At the WSIB, we understand the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on Ontario businesses. To continue to help reduce the financial burden on businesses during this difficult time, any repayment of deferred WSIB premiums as part of our financial relief package will not begin before January 2021.

Our financial relief package deferment period comes to an end on August 31, 2020. Regular reporting and payment schedules for all businesses who report and pay monthly, quarterly or annually based on their insurable earnings will resume in September.

Reporting and paying deferred amounts:
Reporting: Schedule 1 businesses are encouraged to start reporting deferred premiums now and will have to report all deferred amounts by October 31, 2020. You can report your deferred premiums by:
• using our online services
• emailing us at employeraccounts@wsib.on.ca with each outstanding period clearly defined. For example: August 2020 – payroll = $100, premiums = $10
• complete the premium remittance form for the corresponding reporting period and mail to P.O. Box 4115 Station A Toronto M5W 2V3

Payment: Repayment of deferred WSIB premiums, claim payments and administrative fees between March to August 2020, will not be due before January 2021 for all Schedule 1 and 2 businesses. Businesses may choose to start making deferred payments prior to January 2021. We will provide more information on the repayment schedule for deferred amounts, along with 2021 premium rate information, in the fall.

We recognize that some businesses may require longer repayment terms due to the ongoing pandemic. If you require additional support once the repayment period has started, please contact us and we will be happy to work with you.

Beginning September 1, 2020, all upcoming payment obligations will be due on the normal payment cycle for all businesses, as outlined on your statements or invoices.

Guide for Maintaining Building Plumbing After an Extended Vacancy
Guide for Maintaining Building Plumbing After an Extended Vacancy

As Ontario enters its second stage of reopening the province, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks is releasing a guide to help building owners and operators ensure water quality is restored before opening their buildings to workers and the public.

When water sits in pipes for long periods, it can pose a risk to human health. Prior to reopening buildings to the public, building owners and managers are responsible for beginning water flushing activities to restore the water quality and ensure the safety of drinking water.

The following document, Guide for Maintaining Building Plumbing After an Extended Vacancy, outlines the procedures building owners and managers should take to ensure the water in their building is safe. It is also important to communicate with tenants, local public health units, and, if necessary, the municipality, to ensure the delivery of safe drinking water. See the guide for further details.
