Return to Work Support Services
When people are injured on the job and need support during their return to work, we may refer them to our network of Return to Work Support Services (RTWSS) providers. This network is made up of providers who have entered into contracts with us.
New report templates available
On May 1, 2023, we updated our report templates and reference manual for this program to reflect abilities-focused language, including new discharge status categories.
Please use the updated templates available in the Resources section below. To learn more, read the bulletin on abilities-focused language.
Overview of services
This program's services are for people who need a structured rehabilitation program in the workplace rather than in a clinic setting. Services can be performed by a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, or kinesiologist, and include any or all of the following:
- Job site visits
- Return to work planning
- Return to work monitoring
- Job demand analyses
