Reimbursement of the cost of routine home maintenance work

The CNESST reimburses the cost of routine home maintenance work for certain workers who have had a work accident or who have an occupational disease.

Reimbursement of the cost of routine home maintenance work may be granted to a worker if:

  • they are admitted to rehabilitation
  • they suffered a serious permanent physical impairment as a result of their employment injury
  • they are unable to do the routine home maintenance work that they would normally do were it not for their injury

The cost of home maintenance work that may be reimbursed includes:

  • lawn mowing
  • painting
  • major cleaning (for example, spring cleaning)
  • snow removal

Claim for reimbursement

As a worker, to be reimbursed, you must obtain prior approval from the CNESST and provide at least 2 cost quotes for the work. You must then submit supporting documents, such as invoices. Reimbursement is made only for work and amounts that were the subject of a CNESST decision.
