The Social Assistance Review is now underway as part of Ontario’s strategy to reduce poverty.
I wanted to share with you that there are several workshops happening (community agency-led, not by the Commission) in Parkdale to encourage people on social assistance to participate in giving input to the Commissioners responsible for the Ontario Social Assistance Review (www.socialassistancereview.ca).
For more information on two of the workshops being held next week see http://sareview.ca/isac-resources/facilitators-guide/ . The workshops will not be based strictly on the Commissioner’s questions, but rather an alternative but related focus developed by the ODSP Action Coalition.
This is a very important opportunity that we hope will lead to progressive change for people needing social assistance.
