The provincial government increased Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) rates in the 2016 Ontario Budget.

As in past years, Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) has created a rates sheet to give people an idea of what these increases really mean.

These new rates sheet shows the new Basic Needs and Shelter rates, as well as the Ontario Child Benefit amounts, for different family types. They include the Ontario Child Benefit because it’s an important part of the total incomes of people on OW and ODSP who have children.

The rates sheet also explains the details of these increases, how they’re being applied and to whom, and cover increases being made to other benefits available inside OW and ODSP.

The increases come into effect on the September 30, 2016 OW and ODSP cheques.
