National Charter Class Claim


Things happening by injured workers, to Help injured workers!



National Charter Class Claim

This webpage has been setup to provide information regarding the National Charter Class Claim against every one of Canada's Provincial/Territorial workers compensation boards, specifically the WCB/WSIB/WorkSafe, and against every one of Canada Provincial/Territorial workers compensation appeals tribunals.

Pressently, the plan is to prepare a claim based on the three demands of the WorkersCompIsARight campaign specifically
DEEMING, PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS, AND IMEs(paid board doctors and paper doctors)

Three more issues/methods of concern have been added.
The first is delays, to address the intentional institutional delays within all of Canada's workers compensation systems.
The second is Age, to address the discriminatory practice of the WCBs and WCATs to reduce, suspend, or deny benefits solely based on a person reaching the age of 65, or being over age 65.
The third is secondary injuries, to address the discriminatory practice of the WCBs and WCATs to ignore the secondary injuries which occur as a result of injured workers having to deal with the workers compensation systems and its respective appeal process.

Additionally, there is an agreement where injured workers will, if they are interested file a Charter class Claim in their own respective province/territory.

If you know of any other Class Actions currently filed against any workers compensation board and/or tribunal in Canada
please let me know by e-mail at fightwcb@gmail.com


The National Constitutional Class Question
has been filed in Court today... AGAIN!
This is the third time, so... third time is a charm… we hope!.
I am just waiting on a confirmation and stamped copy of the court document. This is it can be severed on the defendants. I will upload it here when and if I receive it.
This is sometimes a normal thing. This is because the court clerks are just making sure everything is correct.
This is so it hopefully will not be dismissed by the judge on a silly procedural matter.


I have added a new section at the very bottom of this page,
that includes any documents that have been filed with the Court, as well as any other related documents such as press releases.

While I am personally pursuing this avenue, of considering filing a National Charter Class Claim, I wish to make clear that it is something
I am doing on my own, as a self-represented injured worker.
While I have affiliations with other organizations, they have nothing to do with this or anything else I am pursuing on my own as a self-represented injured worker.
ONIWG or CIWA has NOT endorsed, supported, or encouraged this action.
While I endorse and support ONIWG’s campaign of #WorkersCompIsARight, ONIWG has NOT in anyway endorsed or supported this action in anyway.
IWWDC has NOT endorsed, supported, or encouraged this action.
McMaster University has NOT endorsed, supported, or encouraged this action.
Or any other organization I am personally affiliated with as an individual.
While I am a Licensed Paralegal by the Law Society of Ontario, I am NOT advancing this as a member of the Bar.
The purpose is NOT to provide legal advice in the area outside of the scope of paralegals, but for myself as a self-represented injured worker to bring a national class action based on well-known and common grounds.

Strict ZOOM Meeting Etiquette


Due to the size and scope of the meeting, I must insist on strict meeting rules be followed for us to achieve our goals!

  • The meeting will be limited to one hour.


  • Anyone found to be disrupting the meeting and/or speaking abusively to the host or other participants will be ejected from the meeting.

    As there is a delay in ZOOM, a speaker list will be used and only the person who has been asked to speak will be allowed to speak.
    PLEASE DO NOT TELL YOUR STORY DURING THIS MEETING!
    Your story is very important to me and everyone, but please just stick to answering the specific questions. So, I can get a feel of the issues affecting all injured workers in Canada. This will also allow others to speak.
    I DO WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY, but not here and now.
    In time, I will be provided a way for you to tell me your story and I can post it on my website.

  • To respect the privacy of attendees, the meeting will NOT be recorded, but I will be taking notes, where possible, but will not include any personal information in my notes. I will save the Chat if anyone makes comments in the chat but will not make it public.

    PLEASE DO NOT disclose the ZOOM link and/or invite e-mail to anyone!
    It will be considered a breach of everyone’s privacy and you will be ejected from the meeting and barred from any further meetings.
    I must insist on this to protect people’s privacy and ensure the conversations are kept privileged between us.
    If you know anyone who is interested in wanting to take part in the meeting have them come here as you did and register.
    While I place an extremely great importance of the media, they will not be invited to this meeting.
    This is to ensure the privacy of the injured workers and family members of injured workers.

    As always, I value your input and hope this will be a productive and informative meeting for me and you!


    Thank you!
