Contribution Rate Calculator

On July 1, 2022, your pension contribution rates will increase by 0.6 per cent of your pensionable earnings.


Effective July 1, 2022, contribution rate A (the per cent of pensionable earnings below the YMPE*), will increase to 7.0 per cent and contribution rate B (the per cent of pensionable earnings above YMPE), will increase to 8.8 per cent.

*Year’s maximum pensionable earnings (YMPE) is a number set by the Government of Canada at $64,900 for 2022.

When will this be reflected on my pay?

Your contributions are deducted directly from your bi-weekly pay. Depending on which WISE Trust participating employer you work for, you’ll see the contribution increase on the following pay date:

WISE Trust Participating Employer Pay Date
Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) July 28, 2022
Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) July 28, 2022
Public Services Health and Safety Association (PSHSA) July 28, 2022
Workplace Safety and Prevention Services (WSPS) July 14, 2022
Workplace Safety North (WSN) July 28, 2022
Workplace Insurance and Safety Employee Trust (WISE Trust) July 28, 2022

Why is this happening?

Since July 1, 2020, member contribution rates have gradually increased by 0.6 per cent of pensionable earnings per year and will do so until the funding for the Plan reaches a 50/50 employer-member cost-sharing ratio. By doing this together, we will help maintain a sustainable pension plan!
