Can Ontario Works help pay for a special diet?

1. Ask OW for the application form

To apply for a special diet allowance, you must ask your Ontario Works (OW) worker for the special diet allowance application form.

When to apply

You can apply for a special diet allowance when you first apply for OW or while you're on OW.

If you or other members of your household qualify for a special diet, OW must look at this when they decide:

  • whether you qualify for
  • how much assistance you get
