What is the deadline for reporting an injury?

Workers and employers have different deadlines for reporting injuries.


As a worker, you must report a work-related injury or illness to your employer as soon as possible after it occurs.

You have up to 12 months to report an injury or illness to YWCHSB. We recommend you do it as quickly as you can, though, while the details of the incident are still fresh in your mind. 

Reporting an injury sooner will also make it easier for us to provide benefits and medical care more quickly, increasing the likelihood of preventing any long-term disability.

Workers can report an injury online: Workers' Report of Injury Illness


As an employer, you have three working days from the time you learn an employee has been injured to submit the Employer’s Report of Injury. After three days, penalties may be applied.

Serious Incidents

Any incident likely to have caused serious injury must be reported immediately to Occupational Health and Safety.

The 24-hour reporting line is (867) 667-5450.
