Until further notice we will not be issuing Income Statement/Return Cards instead please send as an email stating that you are returning for the next month’s social assistance and whether or not you have income to report or call if you are not able to email. For those with income to report, forward copies of cheque stubs or pay advices through email. Please do the same with rent or board & lodge receipts or hydro bills.
Home repairs will be provided only on an emergency basis.
For those who need to apply for Ontario Works Assistance please contact us and we will make arrangements and such appointments will be scheduled accordingly.
We are continuing to encourage clients to set up bank accounts or give us existing bank account information (Direct Deposit Slips from bank or We Card Info) so we can use the Direct Deposit system as much as possible. Complete your forms and again email them to your work and cc Norma or Verna.
Thank you for your cooperation.
