Do you think that Ontario Works and ODSP rates are too low? So do we!

Social assistance rates have stagnated over the past several decades, resulting in overburdened shelter systems, rampant food insecurity, and an overall diminished quality of life for vulnerable low-income families and individuals across all of Ontario.

Please help us support low-income Durham Region Residents by writing an email to [email protected], and/or your local MPP to tell them you support an increase to Ontario's Social Assistance rates. You can find contact info for your local MPP HERE.

Remember: an increase to these rates will benefit all Ontarians. Even a short email will do. Just make sure you include your name and address, so the letter will be considered legitimate.

(These are the current Ontario Works rates.)
