Support Bill 191: Give frontline workers the support they deserve

Our frontline workers are heroes. They are taking care of our communities during this crisis, and we need to make sure we take care of them.

Currently, COVID-19 related WSIB claims are adjudicated on a case-by-case basis. Frontline workers who are sick must prove that their contraction of COVID-19 was work-related.

This is unacceptable.

Frontline workers who have contracted COVID-19 while serving the people of Ontario should not be burdened with excessive stress and delays in receiving the benefits they need.

Bill 191 would add a presumption that COVID-19 is an occupational disease for essential workers who test positive.

In solidarity,
