Ontario Works (Welfare)

I was refused Ontario Works, what should I do?

Sometimes when you file an application for social assistance through Ontario Works, you don't qualify to receive any money. You should receive a letter saying why you're not eligible, and you have a right to appeal the decision.

You may want to appeal if you've been denied financial assistance, or if you think the amount you're receiving is too low. 

To challenge the decision, you need to go through two steps.
