The Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) provides income and employment support to people with disabilities. You can apply for ODSP while receiving Ontario Works, but it is not a requirement to be on Ontario Works to apply for the program.

To qualify for ODSP, you must:

  • be 18 years or older
  • live in Ontario
  • be financially eligible
  • have a substantial physical or mental health problem, expected to last one year or longer, that substantially limits your ability to work, look after yourself or carry out daily activities.
