Answer

The Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) has a benefit they call Mandatory Special Necessities.

When you get income support from ODSP, you may also be able to get this benefit to pay for the cost of travelling for medical treatment.

To get this help, your travel costs must be over $15 in a month.

There are rules about:

  • what kind of treatment ODSP will pay travel costs for
  • how much ODSP will pay
  • how to apply
