Cornwall Ontario – In light of the potential service disruption at Canada Post, the Ontario Works office has put a plan in place to assist recipients in getting their payments and benefits on time.
The plan is effective regardless of whether there is a Canada Post strike or not. It applies to all Ontario Works recipients including those who reside in SDG.
Recipients are invited to pick up their Ontario Works cheques and/or DBD (drug and dental cards) on Thursday, June 30th or Monday, July 4th at the Benson Centre (Pad 3) between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm.
Recipients will be required to provide appropriate ID such as a birth certificate, health card, driver’s licence or passport.
For those who receive Ontario Works payments through direct deposit, the payments will be deposited into the bank account as usual.
For questions about ODSP payments, please call (613) 932-3381. Questions about Ontario Renovates payments can be directed to (613) 930-2787 ext. 2344.
