ODSP ‘Day Of Action’


OPSEU conducted a province-wide protest yesterday “to raise awareness of the stress faced by front line workers who handle more than 500 [ODSP] cases at a time.” 01

“The call for a Day of Action [resulted from] … severe understaffing and under funding that has caused a crisis in a provincial program that administers and distributes more than $2.6 billion in income support payments to disabled Ontarians living in poverty. Clients often go months before receiving benefit payments and service because of backlogs.” 02
