Work-Related Chronic Mental Stress Policy Consultation

We have completed consultations on our draft Chronic Mental Stress policy. For details on the consultation submissions and the WSIB’s response, please see our Chronic Mental Stress Policy Consultation Summary

Input we received through the consultation process was used to create our  new Chronic Mental Stress policy (Policy 15-03-14) has been finalized and approved. We have also made changes to the Traumatic Mental Stress policy (Policy 15-03-02) to provide clarity between the two types of work-related mental stress. These policy changes will come into effect on January 1, 2018. For more information see the Policy updates/clarification page.

On December 14, the provincial government made additional updates to mental stress provisions in the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997. For more information on those provisions and on our Chronic Mental Stress Policy, visit the Chronic Mental Stress webpage on our website.
