WSIB Announces Consultation on its Certificate of Clearance (2010) policy and on its new eClearance

Published on January 18, 2010

On January 18, 2010, the WSIB posted its notice of consultations inviting comments on a revised draft operational policy affecting all employers in those industries who use Certificates of Clearance.  Also included in this consultation are discussions on its new eClearance System which proposes to extend the validity period from 60 days up to 90 days for all employers who require clearance certificates in 2010.

The Certificate of Clearance policy has been broken into two parts because the WSIB plans to roll out an eClearance System in 2010.

The WSIB is consulting on the following draft operational policies:

  • Certificate of Clearance Policy 2010 (eClearance) for all employers (161k, pdf): Principals, contractors and subcontractors for all industries will be able to obtain and verify the authenticity of certificates of clearance online through the WSIB website using the new online eClearance system. The policy proposes to extend the validity period from 60 days up to 90 days.

The WSIB is accepting written comments for part one of the Certificate of Clearance Policy (2010) (161k, pdf) until March 31, 2010. The WSIB stated that feedback received from the consultation are to be considered in developing the final policy. 


CME will be providing a response to  the consultation document.  All input from CME members are welcome and will used in developing our response.  Please send any comments to
