Each province is unique in their laws about opting out of workers' compensation as an owner-operator. Ontario and Alberta are 2 provinces which allow an owner-operator to opt out of paying WCB or WSIB, and purchase an alternative policy for cheaper and better coverage. Our WSIB alternative disability policy is specifically designed for the for a Canadian owner-operator or driver. Unlike the workers’ compensation policy, our policy will cover you 24/7 while you are on or off the job! If you are an independent owner-operator, this coverage is the perfect fit for you. Whether you are looking to save on your monthly costs or get better coverage, our policy is here to help. Drivers who want to ‘top up’ their provincial workers’ compensation love this policy as an option too.

“I tore my rotator cuff while in Houston, Texas and drove home in extreme pain. I called National Truck League when I returned home and am grateful that they looked after my claim while I had surgery and recuperated.
Without National Truck League I would have suffered financial duress and would not have been able to continue operating my business.”
