The Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT) has announced that effective March 28, 2022 there will be a new secure, cloud based, file sharing service available to parties. The new service is called E-Share.  E-Share is a cloud based, secure file sharing service built on TitanFileTM.

Parties who choose to use this service will be able to receive case materials faster and access them at a time that is convenient to them.

The new service will be available in English and French. The case material for a WSIAT appeal or application, such as the Case Record or Addenda, can be sent via E-share to parties in Adobe PDF format. Parties who would like to receive electronic copies of the case materials, need to complete and send an E-Share Consent Form to WSIAT. More information on the process is available on WSIAT’s website.

The WSIAT has also offered an E-File service for parties since September 4, 2020 where parties can submit documents to the WSIAT electronically through the WSIAT website. Using the E-File service, parties can E-File any appeal or application related document (in Adobe PDF format) on the WSIAT’s website. This includes WSIB decisions, documentary evidence, written submissions, and receipts. You can also use E-Filing to submit WSIAT forms if you have filled and saved them using Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader DC. More information on the E-File service can be found on the WSIAT’s website. Additional FAQs for the E-File service is also found on the WSIAT website.
