Here is some information on WSIB Presumptive Cancers in Fire Fighters

Presumptive Cancers in Fire Fighters

WSIB Presumptive Cancers in Fire Fighters


If a firefighter or a fire investigator is diagnosed with a prescribed cancer on or after January 1, 1960, and meets the employment duration and additional criteria for the prescribed cancer, then the disease is presumed to be an occupational disease due to the nature of the worker’s employment, unless the contrary is shown.

To qualify for this presumption, workers must meet the inclusion criteria of this policy, and also must have been:

  • diagnosed with a prescribed cancer

  • diagnosed after the prescribed minimum employment duration, and

  • diagnosed with that cancer on or after January 1, 1960.

Workers not meeting the inclusion criteria, and those excluded from this policy, will have their claims determined on their individual merits.

The presumption may be rebutted if it is established that the employment was not a significant contributing factor to the occurrence of the cancer.
