Social Benefits Tribunal (SBT)

If your Ontario Works (OW) or Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) assistance is refused, reduced, or cut off, you may be able to appeal to the Social Benefits Tribunal (SBT).

The SBT is like a court but less formal. It is independent from OW and ODSP and has the power to make a different decision.

You can contact the SBT at 1-800-753-3895 or 1-800-268-7095 (TTY). There is more detailed contact information, copies of SBT forms, and information on appealing a decision about your right to assistance from OW or ODSP, on the SBT website.
