Ontario Works has denied my application to receive benefits due to an overpayment over a year ago. They told me I was lucky that they aren't pursuing a fraud charge. They told me I was banned for life. Is this legal? My only option is to be homeless?

About six months ago, I sent a scanned copy of my Alberta Health Card and Passport to an ‘employer’ who wanted me to work in their ‘company’ online. In addition to this, I had signed a ‘work application’ and have been ‘hired.’ That person hasn’t gotten back to me since. I’m really afraid I’ve foolishly put myself at risk for identity theft. I am 17-years-old and my mother refuses to help me with this, leading to me not being able to do anything for months. I cannot check possible credit scores or accounts opened in my name without a consenting adult to help me because I’m still a minor.

Our school has a program that we use to apply for high school (myBlueprint). This allows us to select the courses we want to take in grades 9,10,11, and 12.  My teacher has recommended that I take all academics in math, language, and science. I have selected the courses based on my teacher's recommendation, but it shows an exclamation mark beside the course I have selected saying: Recommended Prerequisite Grade: 70%. What does this mean?

Hi, I'm a 17-year-old teenager with a 16-year-old sister looking for help. My sister and I are very uncomfortable living with our dad. He has harassed us in many ways to the point where he won't even give us privacy in our own bedrooms. He has kicked us out, hit us, and threatened us many times, and now I feel a bit of sexual harassment. I have called the student welfare many times but they always say that we already have a case under our names and they won't explain what they mean by "case." He won't give us a dime for food, clothes, or anything.
