Ontario Works (OW) / Welfare

The Ontario Works Program provides income and employment assistance for people who are in temporary financial need. In addition to financial help, clients may be eligible for drug and dental coverage, eyeglasses, hearing aids, and community and employment start-up benefits.

How We Can Help

West End Legal Services work in the area of Ontario Works law. We can assist clients with a variety of matters, including:

  • Appeals where a person has been denied benefits and there may be merit to appealing the denial of benefits.
  • Appeals where a person is on benefits but benefits are suspended.
  • Appeals where a large overpayment has been assessed and there may be merit to appealing the overpayment question.
