Register today for an upcoming webinar on September 27, 2018, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (E.S.T.) - On July 31, 2018, while scrapping the Basic Income pilot, the Ontario government announced that a number of improvements to Ontario Works (OW) and the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) would not take place in the Fall of 2018 as scheduled. Minister MacLeod also announced that her ministry will reveal a new social assistance program after a 100 day review. In this webinar, Jennefer Laidley and liz walker of ISAC review these decisions and many of the improvements that were slated for the Fall of 2018, as well as the government’s stated priorities for changing the social assistance system and what they could mean. The webinar looks at the kinds of principles that the government should use to create an effective and compassionate social assistance system. The webinar also discusses actions that each of us can take before November 8, 2018 to ensure the provincial government hears from us about what a good system should be.
