Anyone that wants to post their rates for worker’s comp, to add to this discussion started by B.C. contractor Derek Kite, please do so.

“I’m curious what the rates are. I just got my assessment for 2015 from WorksafeBC. I’m commercial refrigeration and a/c, and my net rate per $100 is $1.76. How does that compare to Ontario or other provinces? I got an adjustment down of 30 cents due to claims history (none).”

  1. Re Derek Kite in BC. We are in the residental A/C trade in the province of Ontaio. Our rate is 4.19 per $100. With a good record. Count yourself lucky.

    Re Derek Kite in BC. We are in residential concrete (flat work) in Ontario. Our rate is $9.10 per $100. We also have a good record with no accidents or injuries to date. This is extremely tough for us a small business. We have potential to hire more employees but with the rate this high we can’t afford to grow our business.

    I am in the window and door sales and intsall buisness in ontario, clean record $10.25 per &100.00

    I’m an electrical contractor in BC my base rate is $2.25 / $100
    My net rate after 15 years in business with a clean record is $1.37 / $100
    39% discount
    5 years ago I was paying around $0.90 / 100 with a 31 % discount.
    Its going up faster then my discount.

    When we submit our monthly WSIB form we have to calculate how much in wage we have paid in 3 categories. Because we are a renovation company that does multiple tasks we have to submit as such. We have a clear record of accidents for approx. 10 years. our rates for carpentry work is 9.10, rate for siding etc. work is 10.25 and roofing is at 14.80. I have asked to put our bookkeeping staff at a lower rate as an accountant would pay but WSIB rejected that and said that I have to claim them for a minimum carpentry rate as we are a renovation company. Funny how they want us to separate for the guys in the field but not the office staff

    I’m a flooring contractor in Ontario 9.3 %.
    My personal insurance is WAY lower than that and does 300% more coverage. Perfect record as well.

  7. Marten Burghgraef says:

    Just found out that we are getting a discount in Jan. Down to $8.50/100. We do both residential renos and commercial new construction as a sub contractor, mostly doors and hardware. I have to pay the same for my wife although she is only on a job site once in a while, say once every week or two sometimes helping other times deliveries. Otherwise she looks after the accounting. Go figure.

  8. Bryan says:

    Residential renovations in Ontario with a clean record – 9.10%

  9. Bob2 says:

    Man on man, the robbery in Ontario is down right scary, operating a business in Ontario makes less and less sense every day.

  10. kitman says:

    9.10 % for kitchen installers which is steep, but also 9.10% for a kitchen designer who might get a paper cut. Private insurance would be way more comprehensive for the same cost.
