New webinar: Immigration status and social assistance during COVID-19

Are you a community worker who serves:

  • undocumented people or those living with temporary status?
  • people who want to sponsor or be sponsored by relatives to come to Canada?

On June 23, lawyers from Ontario's legal clinic system joined us to share important information and practical tips about the interaction between immigration status and receiving social assistance. They addressed common misunderstandings about who is eligible for social assistance programs in Ontario, as well as the consequences of receiving Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).  

This 90 minute webinar is now available for on-demand viewing.  It includes a Q&A session with questions posed by community workers.
