KEEP MORE For people on social assistance, it's impossible to get ahead
when the little you have is taken away.
CHANGE CHILD SUPPORT RULES
In a single parent family, any child support received is deducted from social assistance income. How can children get a head start when there's barely enough money for food, let alone anything else that makes being a kid such a fun and enriching time?
CHANGE SOCIAL ASSISSTANCE RULES
Current rules require Ontarians in need to totally impoverish themselves by using up all of their assets and savings in order to become eligible to social assistance. The rules should be changed to
allow people to keep more and have a chance at getting ahead.
Send an e-postcard to Premier Kathleen Wynne,
PC Leader Tim Hudak, and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath to remind them to fulfill
their commitment to reduce child poverty by 25% in Ontario by the end of 2013.
