After almost six years as Chair of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), Steve Mahoney has announced he will not be seeking reappointment when his term ends in May 2012.

On behalf of our government, I want to thank Steve for his dedicated service and commitment to the working men and women of Ontario.

He has provided steady direction at the helm of the WSIB through a period of significant transition at the agency. Under his leadership, the WSIB has made great strides in reducing time lost to injuries and illness in Ontario workplaces.

Steve is greatly respected and I thank him for his thoughtful advice. I have no doubt that he will succeed in whatever endeavours he moves on to.

A public posting for a new chair will be issued shortly.

The Honourable Linda Jeffrey
Minister of Labour
