Clearances

A clearance is a unique number issued by the WSIB that shows that a business, contractor or subcontractor is registered and up to date with us, including keeping current with premium payment and reporting. 

A clearance will automatically be created for your business, as long as you are up to date on your WSIB payments and reporting. This clearance number is valid for all your contracts. See our FAQs for more details.
