If you speak French

Ask a lawyer or a community legal clinic about your language rights. You may have the right to get your OW-related government services in French.

If you are appealing a decision about your right to social assistance from OW, this could mean that you have the right to a hearing before a French‑speaking member of the Social Benefits Tribunal, as well as other French‑language services.

Si vous parlez français

Communiquez avec un avocat ou une clinique juridique communautaire, et informez-vous de vos droits linguistiques. Il se peut que vous ayez droit à ce que les services gouvernementaux reliés à Ontario au travail (OT) vous soient fournis en français.

Si vous avez fait appel d’une décision concernant votre droit à l’aide sociale d’OT, vous pourriez avoir droit à une audience devant un membre du Tribunal de l’aide sociale qui parle français, de même qu’à d’autres services en français.
