Getting legal help
Ontario Disability Support Program / Ontario Works
You can get help with Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or Ontario Works (OW) through most legal clinics if the Ontario government:
- reduced the amount of money you get from OW or ODSP and you want to appeal
- stopped your OW or ODSP income and you want to appeal
- told you that you cannot get ODSP and you want to appeal.
A legal clinic will not charge you for legal advice, but they may ask you to pay for certain fees such as court filing and medical record fees.
If you receive a letter that says the government is going to suspend or cancel your OW or ODSP, call or email your caseworker at your local Ontario Works office immediately.
