Ontario Works Social Assistance Cheques

Ontario Works client cheques will not be mailed out due to the rotating postal service disruptions at Canada Post.  Clients expecting payment by cheque should contact their case manager for pick-up information.

Ontario Works recipients who regularly receive payments by direct deposit will continue to have their funds deposited into their bank account. Monthly direct deposit statements and dental cards will continue to be mailed.
