Recorded on February 17, 2012  - The Commission for the Review of Social Assistance in Ontario released its second discussion paper on February 3, 2012 and is asking for feedback on a number of approaches it could take in reforming social assistance. The options could have far-reaching implications for people on low incomes.

In this webinar, Jennefer Laidley of the Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) will provide an overview and initial analysis of the various options and key issues in the discussion paper.
