Occupational Health and Safety: Reimbursement for Expenses Incurred as a Result of an Employment Injury | Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail

Applying for the Reimbursement of Expenses Incurred as a Result of an Employment Injury

To request reimbursement of expenses incurred because of an employment injury, you must proceed in one of the following ways, depending on the nature of the expenses in question.

  • For expenses for the repair or replacement of prostheses and orthotic devices made necessary by an employment injury, you are generally not required to take any steps because reimbursement of these expenses was requested as part of your initial claim (both the application form and the online service include a section for this purpose).
  • For expenses incurred to repair or replace prostheses and orthotic devices damaged in the course of an occupational accident (such as glasses broken in a work-related accident), you must:
      • use the Demande de remboursement de frais online service (in French only) to submit the electronic form and then send in the required documents by mail or fax to the Commission office responsible for your region, or
      • complete the Application for Reimbursement of Expenses form, enclose the required documents, and then submit the form and documents by mail or fax to the Commission office responsible for your region
  • For drug, travel, meals or living expenses, or expenses for the cleaning, repair or replacement of clothing, you must:
      • use the Demande de remboursement de frais online service (in French only) to submit the electronic form and then send in the required documents by mail or fax to the Commission office responsible for your region, or
      • complete the Application for Reimbursement of Expenses form, enclose the required documents, and submit the form and documents by mail or fax to the Commission office responsible for your region
To find the Commission office responsible for your region, you can use the Nos bureaux online service (in French only).
 
Note
In both cases, we recommend that you keep one copy of the form (paper or electronic) for your records and another for your employer. The electronic form must be printed before it is submitted. You can also telephone the Commission to ask to receive a copy by mail once your form has been submitted.
