If you send a completed form to the WSIB or the WSIAT, it is a good idea to send it by fax, courier or registered mail so you have proof that you sent the form within the time limit. You should keep a copy of the completed form, along with the receipt or fax confirmation sheet, in your records.   

You must complete and send in an appeal form for every WSIB decision you want to appeal.
