The Office of the Worker Adviser has fifteen offices, located throughout Ontario. The head office is located in downtown Toronto.
We welcome your comments as they may provide valuable information on ways we can improve our services to injured workers, but caution that the OWA does not have the power or the mandate to change WSIB or WSIAT decisions.
The internet is not private. Please do not send any confidential information via the OWA’s website because no information you send to us can be held in confidence.
Contacting us via our website will not make us your representative and does not mean we are assisting you, advising you, or providing you with representation in regards to your legal matter.
If you would like the OWA to represent you regarding a WSIB matter, please call the OWA regional/district office closest to your home address. For assistance with a reprisal matter, please call our health and safety reprisal line.
