OW and ODSP Rates and the Ontario Child Benefit September, 2017

The Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) has created a rates sheet to let people on social assistance, and people who work with them, know what the rates are for Ontario Works, ODSP and the Ontario Child Benefit. The September 2017 rates sheet shows the new Basic Needs and Maximum Shelter rates for different family types. This rates sheet also shows the Ontario Child Benefit amounts, for people who have children.

The rates sheet also gives some background about decisions behind the increases, and talks about increases being made to other benefits available inside OW and ODSP.

The increases come into effect on OW and ODSP cheques received at the end of September, 2017.
