Ontario Disability Support Program

A person with a disability, who is age 18 or over, may be eligible for the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) regardless of whether they live with their parents or not. ODSP offers:

  • financial assistance to help with essential living expenses;
  • health, dental and vision benefits; and,
  • employment supports to help find and keep a job, or career advancement.

ODSP recipients and their parents or caregivers are always looking for ways to supplement their benefits however they have to ensure to stay within very restrictive provincial guidelines. There are exceptions to the guidelines with a number of ways to save money beyond the $40,000 limit without jeopardizing ODSP benefits.
