Course 1: Form 7 Essentials

You’ve been completing them for years. Learn how to complete them like a legal document that will protect the employer, steer the claim in the right direction and help with appeals.

Each lesson within this course includes an instructional video, handouts, and a quiz.

  1. Provincially regulated employers across Canada require training.
  2. Currently, there is no experienced, reliable source for comprehensive training available to employers.
  3. Law school, paralegal program, OHS, or HR programs are deficient.
  4. How employers usually learn: experience, many times the hard way, by a disastrous claim experience.
  5. Helpful tools, insights, and guidance based on almost two decades of legal experience focusing exclusively on WSIB law.
  6. The foundational principles are the same for all provincially regulated employers throughout Canada.
  7. Employers have overlapping regulatory, administrative and legal obligations. It is challenging to balance numerous legal obligations, employment contracts, collective agreements, and standards of practice while minimizing risks and costs.
  • The legal importance of the Employer’s Statement of Injury or Disease
  • Law & Policy
  • The Accident Investigation: Getting the Facts
  • Critical Sections of the Form 7

Even though a lawyer teaches this course, the information provided is educational and is not legal advice. Attending a webinar or purchasing this program and/or utilizing the information taught does not form a solicitor-client relationship. If you want legal advice, contact Charlebois Associates at and sign a retainer agreement first. Each situation is unique, and there are many subtle but very important ways that claims can differ.

These training courses promote continuing competence and quality improvement in the WSIB claims management process. The goal of this training program is to give you the ability to be analytical, proactive, and informed while managing WSIB claims. With that knowledge, you will know when to get legal help.
