Ontario Works Social Assistance Cheques

Postal service has resumed. January social assistance cheques will be mailed in time to arrive by the end of December.
Ontario Works recipients who regularly receive social assistance payments by direct deposit will continue to have their funds deposited into their bank account.

For more information, call Ontario Works at 905-546-4800.

Not all Hamilton residents can afford a basic, healthy diet. This is not because prices are too high, but because people or families do not have enough money to buy healthy food.
