The Online Employer Registration application is the first step towards purchasing coverage.

It’s a secure Internet application that allows you to begin the process of registering your business with the WCB.

The Online Employer Registration takes approximately five to 10 minutes to complete and you only need to provide the information one time. You can complete the registration request at your convenience (it is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week).

When you complete the online process, your information is submitted to the WCB Assessment Services Department. They will review your information and follow up with you to let you know your status with the WCB.

NOTE: While most businesses in Manitoba are required to register for workers compensation, there are some legislated exclusions such as accounting firms, collection agencies, insurance companies, hairdressers, travel agencies, etc.  Regardless of the type of business, we recommend you complete the Online Employer Registration. If we determine that your business does not require coverage, we will provide you with information on other options available to you.
