About
Injured Workers
of
Wellington & Dufferin Counties
-IWWDC-

Who we are? What we are? What we do? Why we do it? How we do it?

Who we are:
We are injured workers who live in the counties of Wellington & Dufferin. Providing group support and advocacy for each other! There is strength in numbers!

What We Do?
Share our stories, successes, and our failures, in dealing the WSIB (Ontario Workers Compensation System).
We will discuss and learn about how to deal with difficult problems such as:
Deeming
Pre-existing Conditions
Failure of the WSIB to listen to our doctors
We will learn what these issues are, and how to deal with them effectively, as well as many more!

Why we do it?
We are coming together to help each other, as the WSIB, Ontario’s Workers Compensation system has failed Ontario injured workers and they have failed Ontario taxpayers. Too many injured workers have suffered financial, physical and emotional devastation at the hands of the WSIB. Not to mention in many ways Ontario tax payers have had to foot the bill for the WSIB slow and troublesome decision process.

How we do it?
In many ways just coming together to meet face to face can help each other and build strength in each other. We will be having meeting so we can share our stories, our successes and our failures. We will also learn new ways of dealing with problems with the WSIB, employers, and others. We will also be advocating at a political point as well for positive change for injured workers. This will be done by one or a small group who represents many injured workers expressing concerns of its members and they will be heard by our political representatives.

Where we do it?
No specific location or date as yet, but this is in the works.
