The Ontario government plans to change the rules about getting assistance from Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program. Some of our publications will be available online only while we wait for the rules to change.
This resource is about how to apply to Ontario Works for financial assistance. It explains the rights of people applying for assistance, what kind of questions Ontario Works can ask, and what documents people might need to show. It includes information about the forms that have to be filled out and where to get help if there is a problem with Ontario Works or if they refuse assistance.
