    28 - Raise the Rates! Fixing ODSP

    28 - Raise the Rates! Fixing ODSP

    I was thrilled to sit down virtually with my colleague MPP Joel Harden and my constituent Terri-Lynn Langdon, an ODSP recipient, to discuss  how folks on ODSP have been left behind, both during COVID-19 and long  before.

    Low  ODSP rates make it impossible for people to thrive on the program - I  saw this first hand growing up with a parent on ODSP. It was a treat to  talk to Terri-Lynn about her experience as a disability advocate and  parent who navigates these systems every day. I’m fighting for higher  ODSP rates and a comprehensive healthcare system that would improve the  lives of folks on Social Assistance.
