Getting Started - Domestic

Welcome to the WSIB registration site, where we guide you through a series of simple questions to get you started.


Wondering if you need to register?

If you:

  • Are a private householder who has hired a domestic worker for more than 24 hours a week, you are required to register as an employer, or
  • Share a domestic worker with another householder at the same time and the worker is employed for more than 24 hours in total, you are required to register with the other householder as one employer.

NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE ABOVE CONDITIONS, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO REGISTER. CLICK ON THE EXIT BUTTON (TOP RIGHT) TO RETURN TO OUR WEBSITE.


Here's a list of the information you'll need to have on hand when you register:

  • Legal name: The name under which you are registering the account. A legal name could be the name of the householder(s) or the name of a business.
  • Start date of the worker(s) you hired
  • An estimate of gross insurable earnings for a full calendar year
  • Address, phone number, fax
  • Email Address

And, if you are registering as a business:

  • Business trade name
  • Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Business Number (if available)
  • Information about partners, officers in your business (name, address, date of birth)
  • Business addresses, email address, phone number, fax number

I am authorized to submit this registration on behalf of the legal entity (employer) named in this registration. I acknowledge that the information submitted in this registration is accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge and will be used to establish an account.
