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

Misunderstandings exist about who is eligible for social assistance programs in Ontario and about consequences of receiving Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).  Undocumented people and those living with temporary status can be concerned about applying for benefits. And others need to know the rules about sponsoring relatives or being sponsored while receiving social assistance.

Lawyers in the legal clinic system will share important information and practical tips about the interaction between immigration status and receiving social assistance.

Date and time: Thursday, June 23, 2021 10:30 am - 12 noon
*ASL interpretation will be available.

Speakers:  Martine Cétoute, Community Legal Services of Ottawa (CLSO), Sandra Gonzalez Ponce, Income Security Advocacy Clinic (ISAC), Gillian Reiss, Willowdale Community Legal Services (WCLS).
