You need to advise the WCB when there is a change in the legal structure of your business.

If you change from one of these legal structures to another, you need to notify the WCB:

  • sole proprietors
  • partnerships
  • legal partnerships
  • corporations

Contact the WCB to report a change in legal structure at your business.

If employees or family members are going to be taking on part ownership of your business, they will no longer have standard worker WCB coverage. Once they are considered a business owner, they are no longer covered as a worker and will not have access to WCB benefits if they are hurt at work.

Owners still have the option to purchase Personal Coverage to protect themselves if they are hurt at work.

It's important to keep your authorized contacts up to date

We encourage you to review your designated WCB contacts before a significant business change occurs. Only the current authorized contacts can make updates or be given access to account information for the business. This is why it is important to make sure that the correct people are listed before any business changes take place. 

Get in touch with the WCB to confirm a change in your contacts. There is no limit to the amount of contacts that can be added to your account.
