WSIB Open Data Program

The WSIB’s Open Data program is aligned to the Province of Ontario’s Open Data Directive and intended to enhance the way citizens obtain, view and understand our data.

By increasing public access to data managed by the WSIB, the Open Data program provides more transparency, lets citizens and community-based organizations reuse our data, and supports innovation. The Open Data License sets out guidelines for using this data.
