I have a problem with Ontario Works. Where can I get help?

3. Get ready to meet with a lawyer or legal worker

A lawyer or legal worker at a community legal clinic may be able to:

  • help you understand what the rules are about getting Ontario Works (OW)
  • explain your legal rights and responsibilities
  • help you solve a problem by talking to OW for you
  • let you know how long it might take if you have to appeal a decision by OW

When you talk to a lawyer or legal worker, it's important to show them any documents that relate to your problem, including letters from OW.
