While most businesses in Manitoba are required to have WCB coverage, some industries (for example, law, accounting and other professional service firms, rec centres, rinks and others) are not legislated to do so.

For these businesses, we offer Optional Coverage packages to give you the peace of mind that you and your workers are protected in case of a workplace injury.

We encourage you to complete the Online Employer Registration to help us better understand the needs of your business. Online registration is fast, available 24/7 and you only have to do it once. We’ll provide you with insurance information and the best WCB coverage options for your business.

Note: If your business is in a non-mandatory industry and you choose to purchase Optional Coverage, you must provide WCB coverage for all employees in your business. You cannot selectively cover some workers and not others in a single business.
