Bill 163 Submission

The Liberal Government has come out in favour of making substantive changes to the way the WSIB adjudicates claims for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for first responders. Members of the Schedule 2 Employers’ Group Executive felt that it was important to raise some concerns with the Government with respect to their intended approach to the issues under review and to request a meeting with the Minister. Given the speed with which the Government seems to want to move forward with this issue, the S2EG Executive felt it was important to put together a submission as quickly as possible.

Attached is a copy of Bill 163 and our preliminary written submission to the Minister .

The Executive welcomes your feedback and suggestions as we attempt to arrange a meeting with the Minister and begin discussions with him and his staff.
