Income benefits and COVID-19

 Registration is closed for this event

What’s ended, what’s new and how benefits interact

The rules and eligibility for employment insurance and other income assistance programs have changed several times during the pandemic and many programs have ended. 
Which benefits are still available and who qualifies? And how do COVID-19 benefits interact with programs like Ontario Works (OW) or the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS)?
Our community-based experts will explain the rules of income assistance programs using case studies and examples. Learn how to help your clients access benefits while avoiding claw backs or unexpected tax bills.
Date and Time: Tuesday Nov. 30th, 10:30 am -12 noon
