Government of Ontario

Double Social Assistance Rates

There are over 900,000 Ontarians who rely on social assistance.

With inflation is at a forty-year high, people on fixed incomes are forced to make sacrifices every day just to survive.

The provincial government has made only meagre increases to Ontario Disability Support Program rates and no increases to Ontario Works rates in recent years. Recipients of both live in legislated deep poverty, and these small increases have done virtually nothing to improve their lives.

Please download my petition, sign it and return it to my office to be presented in the Legislature, so that we can call together for the province to immediately double social assistance rates so that people can live dignified, healthy lives.
