How to report and pay your premiums

Premium reporting

Premium reporting is the first step of the process. You must report your insurable earnings based on your reporting frequency. Even if your payroll is zero, you must report.

Premiums not reported by the due date will result in a non-compliance charge.

For more information on determining your insurable earnings see, calculating your premium payments and our policy on determining insurable earnings.

Premium payment

Paying your premiums is the second step after reporting your insurable earnings. Payments not made by the due date will result in a non-compliance charge.

Get started today:


1. Sign in

Sign in to your financial institution's online banking service for businesses.

Some financial institutions require their clients to sign up for a “business” bank account in order to make business payments. Please contact your financial institution if you require assistance. Your financial institution may charge a service fee if you choose to report, pay and reconcile your business’ premiums through your online banking. We do not receive any part of this service fee; it goes directly to your financial institution.

You can report, pay and reconcile your premiums through online banking with the following financial institutions: BMO, CIBC, RBC, Scotiabank, TD Bank, National Bank, ATB Financial, Bank of America, Citibank, Desjardins, HSBC, JP Morgan, KEB Canada, Laurentian Bank, Manulife Bank, Meridian Credit Union, PNC Bank Canada.

2. Add WSIB payment type

Under "Add payment type" look for “Compensation and Insurance Boards.”

The following payment types can be selected:

  • WSIB – ONTARIO – Premium Remittance (WSIBP)
  • WSIB – ONTARIO – Reconciliation (WSIBR)
  • WSIB – ONTARIO – Payment on account (WSIBA)

3. WSIB account information

Enter your seven-digit WSIB account number and most recent payment amount to verify your account information for each of the payment service types that you want to add to your online banking profile.

Newly registered international accounts that have not yet made a payment to the WSIB and don’t have a postal code on file can enter “99999” as their postal code in order to sign up for any of the three payment types.


You can report your insurable earnings and make WSIB account payments at the same time that you complete your business taxes through your Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) My Business Account.* Sign in or register for a CRA My Business Account and select WSIB (Ontario) to start using this option today.
