ODSP Action Coalition

As you may probably are all aware that the announcement of the changes that are coming to Ontario Social Assistance System was moved from November 8, 2018 to November 22, 2018. There is a huge uncertainty about the coming changes which adds even more anxiety and stress to our community and province as a whole. 

We have to be ready to deal with those most likely not positive changes. As such, we need to meet and discuss our next steps. 

PLEASE COME AND JOIN US FOR THIS MEETING AND DISCUSSION:

WHEN? - Friday November 30, 2018 2PM - 4PM
 
WHERE? - West Scarborough Community Legal Services, 2425 Eglinton Ave E, Suite 201, Boardroom

GUEST: Mike Adler, Social Media Reporter, would like to join us and ask some questions.
 
Light refreshments and tokens will be provided. Please kindly confirm your attendance by emailing dorispower80@gmail.com
