Social Assistance Review Part 3: Merging OW and ODSP

Recorded on February 6, 2012 - The Commission for the Review of Social Assistance in Ontario is expected to release an Options Paper in early February 2012 with options for reforming Ontario Works (OW) and the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), followed by a very short period for public response and feedback. The options could have far-reaching implications for people on low incomes.

In this webinar series, Jennefer Laidley and Dana Milne of the Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) will present on 3 different options expected in the paper and offer a variety of tools to help groups across Ontario organize consultations in their communities and make submissions.
