Working while you are on social assistance
What if I was on social assistance for at least 3 months in the past?
Earnings exemptions might apply right away. This is the case if all 3 of the following apply to you:
- You were on OW or ODSP for at least 3 months in a row before going oﬀ.
- You had earnings from work or a training program when you went oﬀ OW or ODSP.
- You apply to go back on OW within 6 months from the date you went oﬀ.
