OW and ODSP Rates and the OCB 2018 / Les taux d'OT, du POSPH et de la POE 2018

Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) rates are being increased on July 31, 2018. The Income Security Advocacy Centre has created created a rates sheet to let people on social assistance, and people who work with them, know what these increases mean.

The new rates sheet shows the new Basic Needs and Maximum Shelter rates for different family types, as well as the old rates. The rates sheet also shows the Ontario Child Benefit amounts, for people who have children.

In addition, the rates sheet gives some notes about how some rates and benefits work, important information about increases being made to other benefits available inside OW and ODSP, and links to information about benefits available outside OW and ODSP.

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