The Workplace Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) Ontario has issued a policy on Cannabis for Medical Purposes.
When you have a work-related injury or illness we’re here to help you recover and get back to work. This may include providing you with health-care benefits and in some cases that may include medical cannabis.
To decide if we can include medical cannabis in your benefit coverage, we will look at:
- whether you have one of the five designated work-related medical conditions in the policy.
- whether you’ve received a clinical assessment and medical cannabis treatment has been authorized by your treating health-care professional.
- if you have already tried appropriate conventional treatments for your work-related injury or illness.
