Changes to OW Region of Peel Benefits
As of January 1, 2013 the Community Start-up and Maintenance Benefit will be removed from social assistance. All requests after this date will not be accepted.
The vision for Ontario Works going forward is an enhanced service delivery that is people-centered, and geared towards reducing and addressing homelessness in communities across Ontario.
Benefits will be available to administer homelessness services. Please speak with your Caseworker if you require assistance.
