ONTARIO WORKS – THE PROGRAM
A Case manager is normally available by appointment, at Guthrie House, but clients need to call the Brockville Office at 613-342-3840 or 1-800-267-8146 to apply for assistance, or apply online.
Ontario Works delivers financial and employment assistance to people in our community who are in need.
The goal is simple. Getting people back on the road to financial independence as quickly as possible.
People applying for, and those currently receiving Ontario Works, and who are employable are required to participate in the program. Voluntary participation by the disabled, and single parents with young children is encouraged.
The program is comprised of three components and the participant’s path through these is tailored to their skills and capabilities.
Equip participants with basic education, specific job skills, and experience to become “job ready.”
Provides an opportunity for participants to update their skills, gain experience, and develop a network to get a job.
Matches job-ready participants to paid employment opportunities.
