As a result of increasing demand for service from non-400 employers — and to assist current members with meeting their legislative responsibilities — CSAM will provide assistance and services to any employer through an associate membership, on the following conditions:
*The $500 annual membership fee is waived for all current members of the Winnipeg Construction Association and the Manitoba Home Builders Association. Members of these organizations are eligible to receive services from CSAM as an associate member.
PLEASE NOTE: WCB has recognized the value of industry based safety programs (IBSPs) and is planning to increase the number of employers eligible to receive services from IBSPs. In 2020, the WCB identified several rate classifications as “naturally aligned” to CSAM. This refers to employers who do not pay the five per cent levy** to belong to an IBSP, but based their business operations, would best aligned with and served by the CSAM.
The WCB rate classifications identified as naturally aligned to CSAM include:
|WCB Industry Classification Code||Industry Classification Description|
|50304||Cable and Satellite TV Distribution|
|50311||Audio Visual Services|
|70302||Architects and Engineers|
|70605||Yard Maintenance and Pest Control|
**IBSPs are funded through a five per cent levy, which is included within an employer’s WCB assessment rate.
For example, if your company’s annual assessment rate is $2.00 (per every $100 of payroll), five per cent of that ($0.10 per every $100 of payroll) would be used to fund your respective IBSP.
