What's Changing for Employers

We’re modernizing our systems and processes to provide you with better service and more online service options. The following are some of the service changes we’ll be making for Employers in early 2019. 

Methods of Payment

How does it work now?
We accept cash and post-dated cheques as methods of payment for employers. This practice will continue until the end of 2018. 

How will it change in 2019?
Starting in 2019, we will no longer accept cash or post-dated cheques, and we’ll stop accepting post-dated cheques for dates in 2019 from now on. Regular cheques will still be accepted, and payments may still be made through financial institutions online and in person. The exception is post-dated cheques that have already been delivered to the WCB for payment dates in 2019 – these will be retained and deposited as usual. 

Canada Revenue Agency’s free My Payment service is a fast and easy way to remit your WCB premiums. Learn more at canada.ca, or call us at 1-800-870-3331.

New MyAccount Employer Portal

We’re improving MyAccount, WCB’s online service for employers, to make it easier for employers to support safe and timely return to work. Here’s just a few examples of how we’re changing. More information will follow soon.
