Workplace accidents &
occupational injuries

A public compensation system protects employees who are victims of occupational injuries. The compensation system is managed by the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) in Quebec and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board in Ontario (WSIB). The treatment of claims is often complex and requires professional legal help.
