Rule 6.5.10 – Civil Proceedings

It is the policy of the Toronto Police Services Board that: 

  1. When members are injured while on duty and elect to take personal proceedings against a third party instead of accepting benefits under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, such members will promptly inform the Board in writing of their intention to take such action and complete the necessary documents; and 
  1. In instances where members wish to request to enter into an agreement to de-elect Workplace Safety and Insurance Board benefits in order to commence a civil action, the Chair has the authority to enter into such agreements, on behalf of the Board, subject to review and approval as to form by the City of Toronto Legal Services Division.
