Representatives with multiple cases at the Tribunal must provide a complete list of their cases and specify each case that is affected by the change of address. Multiple changes will not be made by telephone notification. (Mailing addresses are recorded on a per case basis.) 

Who can notify the Tribunal

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) stipulates that only parties associated with a case at the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (e.g. appellant, appellant representative; respondent, respondent representative) may contact the Tribunal regarding changes to their case information.

How to notify the Tribunal 

Not acceptable – A return address on an envelope; a business card; scribbled notes; a telephone call or a general notification.

Notices may be mailed or faxed to the Tribunal: 

Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal
505 University Avenue, 7th Floor
Toronto, Ontario. M5G 2P2 
Fax:  (416) 326-5164

Download and print the change of address form.

The Tribunal will mail confirmation of your change of address within three weeks of receiving your notice.  If you do not receive confirmation, contact the Case Management Coordinator at 416-212-2321 if the address affects more than one case.
