On November 22, the Minister of Children, Community and Social Services, Lisa MacLeod, announced a number of changes to Ontario Works (OW) and the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).
These changes include:
- changing the definition of disability in ODSP to make it more restrictive
- changing the amounts of money that people in both OW and ODSP can keep when they work
- simplifying the rates
- consolidating supplements and benefits in both ODSP and OW
- more emphasis on local service delivery
- giving people on OW wrap-around supports to employment
- and much more
ISAC is hosting a webinar to discuss the announcement, with support from CLEO’s [Community Legal Education Ontario’s] Your Legal Rights.
The webinar will:
- review the proposed changes
- explore what they will mean for low-income people in Ontario
- talk about next steps that people in community can take.
- If you are a group of people on social assistance or work with such a group, please consider setting up a group opportunity to watch the webinar together.
- The webinar will be taped for future viewing, for those who cannot participate live.
