Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I know this question has been sitting for weeks. That is because this area of the law is highly complex and often fact dependent and also because no one on the site can give advice but just information.
You cannot rely on information of a general nature that you receive from a lawyer online but this is just a starting point.
Generally WSIB that is for income replacement ends at 65 as that is when you are considered to have retired and usually that is when CPP retirement pension comes in.
If you apply earlier you will not have the right to continue with the WSIB portion of your benefits that is for income replacement.
But you have to speak to someone at WSIB about this before you rely on this general legal information.
For sure there is an interaction between CPP DP and WSIB benefits.
If they say there is not for early retirement for CPP then you are likely OK but ask for them to provide you something in writing about this.
