1. Learn why Ontario Works may want to visit your home

Ontario Works (OW) can decide to do a home visit to check information about whether you're eligible for assistance and the amount you should get.

This could happen when you apply for financial assistance or while you’re getting assistance.

For example, they might want to check:

  • if you live at the address you gave them
  • if you're living with someone
  • what kind of housing you're living in
  • what you own, for example, if you have more than one car
