Social Assistance Eligibility Estimator
Ontario has two social assistance programs for people in financial need:
- Ontario Works
- Ontario Disability Support Program
The Eligibility Estimator is a quick way to find out if you might qualify for one or both of these programs. It takes about 2-5 minutes.
The Estimator is anonymous - we will not ask you for your name or any personal identification.
The Estimator is not an application for Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program.
You should not use the estimator if:
- You are self-employed;
- You need help with the costs of caring for a child who is temporarily in your care and you are not the natural or adoptive parent of the child);
- You need help with the extra costs of caring for a child with a severe disability; Click here to locate your local Ontario Disability Support Office to obtain information on Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities
