But what if they say "NO"?
What if the workers compensation system denies your claim?
The reality for many seriously
injured workers is that they are subjected to lengthy appeals processes by the
workers compensation systems and then, if their claim is still denied, they

their families without any support.
The CIWS believes that workers compensation boards are failing in their mandate to supply workplace injury compensation, are denying legitimate claims and are terminating compensation prematurely. We are here to voice those concerns and take action to promote fairness in workplace injury compensation across Canada.
To do this, we are collecting stories from injured workers to use as anonymous case examples of misconduct by workers compensation boards across Canada.
