Dear Sister and Brothers,
While we’re advising members of the different measures being taken by the federal government and the EI program, please note that additional financial help is available through Ontario Works. Members in Ontario can contact Ontario Works in their city for help with food, shelter and other costs.
Note that the link takes you to the Toronto page, please advise members to find information about Ontario Works in their city. Ontario Works is advising that only three offices will remain open, and that questions will be handled online or over the phone. Applications are dealt with electronically.
This link provides an overview of financial help that is available; it’s a lengthy list, please take the time to read carefully.
