Getting Started - Restaurant

Welcome to the WSIB registration site. To make registering with us as easy as possible, we will guide you through a series of simple questions to get you started.


Wondering if you need to register?

If you run a food service type business, a tavern or similar establishment, you need to register with the WSIB within 10 days of hiring your first worker. Workers include family members, occasional workers, workers under contract and contractors determined to be your workers by the WSIB.


Here's a list of the information you'll need to have on hand when you register (some may not apply):

  • Business legal name
  • Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) business number, if available
  • Information about partners, officers in your business (name, address, date of birth)
  • Addresses, phone number, fax number
  • Start date of the worker(s) you hired
  • An estimate of gross insurable earnings for a full calendar year
  • Email address

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.


Please note:

In an effort to improve our services, and to better understand your needs, we may share your company name and telephone number with our third party research provider, and you may be contacted to provide feedback regarding your experiences with the WSIB.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact us at 1-800-387-0750.
