The Ontario Human Rights Commission has released their latest take on mandatory vaccines, passports and testing, here: http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/news_centre/ohrc-policy-statement-covid-19-vaccine-mandates-and-proof-vaccine-certificates. In light of this update, and the new directives that the Province released a few weeks ago, we are in the process of updating our covid testing content. Please re-visit the site to access the updated content when it is available.
Question & AnswerWill ODSP help pay my costs when I travel for medical treatment?
When you ask for help with travel costs as part of the Mandatory Special Necessities benefit, the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) sends you a letter to tell you their decision.
If ODSP agrees to pay
If ODSP decides to help pay for your travel costs, they can:
- add the amount to your monthly
- pay the company or service that you use, for example, a taxi company
If ODSP refuses to pay
If ODSP refuses to help pay for your travel costs, you may be able to appeal their decision.
For advice and help appealing the decision, talk to a community legal clinic.
