Region resumes mailing Ontario Works payments

Niagara-Region-logoNiagara Region Community Services has resumed mailing social assistance payments to individuals and families now that Canada Post has withdrawn its lock out notice.

For recipients who receive their Ontario Works payments through direct deposit, payments will continue to be deposited into their bank accounts as usual. Direct deposit slips, drug and dental cards for July will be placed in the mail.

Niagara Region Social Assistance and Employment Opportunities delivers the provincial social assistance program, Ontario Works, which has two components: Income programs provide money and benefits to meet basic needs; Employment programs help Ontario Works clients prepare for and find sustainable employment.
