The Complainant is a statutory corporation and independent agency of the Ontario government - WSIB is the workplace compensation board for provincially-regulated workplaces. It owns numerous official marks. It owns and operates the wsib.on.ca domain name (and wsib.ca).
The Complainant states that the Registrant egregiously used fake email addresses to impersonate WSIB in-house counsel, and attempted to perpetrate a fraudulent wire transfer payment scheme.
The Panl held that the evidence supports a finding that the Domain name was registered for the express purpose of perpetrating a targeted and sophisticated fraud attempt against WSIB.
