Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP)

The Ontario Disability Support Program provides income support to eligible people with disabilities who are in financial need, as well as offering employment support to help those with disabilities who can and want to work.  This program helps participants prepare for and find a job. ODSP is managed and delivered by the Ministry of Community and Social Services.

Income Support provides financial help for people with disabilities who are in need. It can help pay for living expenses, like food and housing.

InMyLanguage.ca has more information about ODSP available in multiple languages.

If you qualify for Income Support, you and your family may also qualify for other benefits, such as:

  • Hearing aids
  • Diabetic supplies
  • Help with transportation costs to medical appointments
  • Wheelchair/mobility device repairs and batteries

Working while receiving income support

Many people who receive Income Support can and want to work.
