Description: The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is committed to delivering exceptional programs and services for Ontario?s workers and employers.

The WSIB mandate also includes promoting health and safety in the workplace and providing compensation and other benefits when return-to-work cannot be achieved. The Grants Program contributes to the WSIB?s mandate by supporting highly practical research studies and training initiatives from leading experts. WSIB grants address current and emerging issues and strengthen Ontario?s workers? compensation system now and in the future.

Application Details: Grant proposals fall into two major categories: research grants and training grants. Both proposal types must be highly practical, delivered by leading experts and demonstrate significant potential to improve outcomes for workers, employers or the broader compensation system.
