The President of IWWDC, Paul Taylor, has recently issued a press release informing people that he fully intends on challenging the constitutionality of S. 37 (1) (2) of the Workplace Safety & Insurance Act. This part of the law allows the WSIB to go to ANY medical professional an injured worker has seen and demand they hand over ALL medical files in their possession. This information is then reviewed by WSIB non medical staff and placed into board memos. these memos are then sent to WSIB paid doctors who then, not surprisingly deny the workers claim. The board memos, which are not medical files are also sent to employers, who now get a complete medical picture of their employee.
The President of IWWDC personally believes this is a complete and blatant violation of the Constitution specifically s. 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The President of IWWDC, Paul Taylor, as an individual Canadian will under s. 24(1) of the Constitution challenge the constitutionality of s. 37 of the WSIA. This based on s. 52 of the Constitution, which simply states the Constitution is above all other laws in Canada. Moreover any Canadian in Canada can challenge the constitutionality of any law in Canada.

ONIWG Issues Report on Deeming
The provincial group Ontario Network of Injured Worker Groups - ONIWG on May 22, 2019 issued a damming report exposing the fraud of the WSIB through the use of deeming, where the WSIB make use of phantom jobs to say workers have returned back to work, when they have not. In many cases these workers injured at work have been forced onto taxpayer funded social assistance or other income replacement programs.

The group for Injured Workers of Wellington & Dufferin Counties - IWWDC was recently formed in 2018, by an injured worker, Paul Taylor who was injured on the job in February 1997. Paul has seen first hand the injustices of Ontario's workers compensation on his own case, as well as many other injured workers.
