No cuts based on phantom jobs,
Listen to injured workers’ treating healthcare professionals, and
Stop cutting benefits based on ‘pre-existing conditions’

Did You Know?

Who We Are?
We are injured workers who reside in Wellington & Dufferin counties.
Together we provide group support for each other, as well as advocacy!

Why We Exist?
For decades, the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board – WSIB (Ontario’s workers’ compensation system), has been defrauding: injured workers, their families and most of all tax payers out of billions of dollars every year, by deliberately denying legitimate work-related injury claims, which is to protect their and employer’s profits.      

Note: Workers’ compensation systems are solely funded through employer premiums - like car insurance.

What We Do?

When & Where?  
The time and place for meetings is set based on the location or town where the meeting will be taking place. For more information on meeting dates times and lcoaitons check the 'Meetings' webpage.


There is and will be an attempt to set the same place and time every month for consistency. There also maybe rotating locations such as a month in Guelph, another in Orangeville, another in Shelburne, then Erin, etc. However this can not be garantted at this time so it is stronglly recomened to check the website for updates as well as the Facebook page. We will do our very best to accommodate residents of all locations, in Wellington & Dufferin Counties, but all will be welcome at all location meetings. This will also depend on how many individuals attend the meetings. 

If you have meeting location, times, and days sugguestions please send me an e-mail at paul@iwwdc.ca.

For more updated information please check back regularly,

as the site will be updateded regularly!
