Social Assistance Changes 2019

This report discusses the history of social assistance in Ontario, the impact that previous changes to the system have had on poverty and food insecurity in this province, and analyzes the Government of Ontario’s proposed reforms. This analysis found that while the reforms included a number of improvements to the current set of policy directives, some of the changes are cause for concern, and may exclude individuals from accessing the assistance they need and create additional barriers to moving out of poverty.
