Ontario Works (OW, which is often still called welfare) administered by the City of Toronto, and the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP). ODSP is a provincial program that is administered by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services. You can find information about both programs on the Ministry website, including office locations.
Where appropriate, we can represent you at the Social Benefits Tribunal (SBT).
Much of our work involves applications for ODSP assistance and appealing the denial of the applications to the Social Benefits Tribunal. We can assist you by identifying medical information that may help your case and requesting it from doctors and specialists.
DVCLS also provides public legal education sessions on request and when our resources allow us to do so.
