Child Support & Social Assistance

This section of the Justice for Children and Youth website addresses these questions:  

  • If I'm over 16 and can't live at home, do my parents have to support me?
  • Can I get Ontario Works ("OW", "welfare" or "social assistance") to live on my own?
  • What does Ontario Works pay for?
  • How do I apply for Ontario Works?
  • Do I have a right to apply for OW?
