Placement Employer WSIB Form

Process for Workplace Safety and Insurance Board coverage:

The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) has implemented a new streamlined process for students enrolled in an approved Ontario university program that requires them to complete placements in a workplace as part of their program of study. Students that are completing placements that are not required for the completion of their academic program of study, but that are for academic credit, are also covered for workplace insurance through policies maintained by the University of Toronto.

WSIB coverage is provided, for the cost of benefits provided to Student Trainees, by the MAESD or the University of Toronto, for students who are enrolled in an approved program at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine and participating in unpaid work placements with employers who are either compulsorily covered or have voluntarily applied to have Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) coverage.

ACE-INA Insurance coverage is also provided for Student Trainees enrolled in an approved program at University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine and participating in unpaid work placements with employers that are not required to have compulsory coverage under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act.

In the event of an injury to a Student Trainee, please notify Roxanne Wright by email at roxanneb.wright@utoronto.ca or by telephone 416-978-0952 immediately by completing and returning the UofT Accident Form (link below). The coordinator will ensure that the appropriate reporting protocol is followed based on insurance type. In the event that the workplace insurance is paid for by the MTCU there will be additional forms for you to complete.
