Raise Social Assistance Rates in Ontario

Ontario’s social assistance rates are woefully inadequate to cover the basic costs of food and rent.

People on the Ontario Works Program receive just $733 per month and people on the Ontario Disability Support Program receive just $1169 per month, only 41% and 65% of the Poverty Line.

Successive Liberal and Conservative governments have failed to increase social assistance rates for Ontarians.

We need a New Democrat government in Ontario that will increase social assistance rates to livable amounts, so our neighbours on social assistance can live their fullest lives
