Can Ontario Works help pay for a special diet?

3. Give the completed application form to OW

You and your health care professional both have to sign the special diet allowance application form. Then, you have to give it to Ontario Works (OW).

By signing the form, you agree to let your doctor or other health professionals give more medical information to OW, if they ask for it.

OW can:

  • ask for more information to show that you need a special diet
  • ask a different health professional to fill out another special diet allowance application form

If OW refuses to give you a special diet allowance

If OW refuses your application for a special diet allowance, you can appeal the decision.
