Simcoe — MPP Bobbi Ann Brady is heartened to see the Fall Economic Statement (FES) contains some Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) adjustments for which she has often advocated.
“Allowing ODSP clients to keep more of their hard-earned money is great news and one of the biggest steps forward in years,” said Haldimand-Norfolk MPP Brady. “This is something for which I have long advocated—and it was part of my platform.”
Highlights of ODSP in the Fall Economic Statement:
- Making changes that would allow a person with a disability on the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) to keep more of the money they earn by increasing the monthly earnings exemption from $200 to $1,000 per month. This would allow the approximately 25,000 individuals currently in the workforce to keep more of their earnings and could encourage as many as 25,000 more to participate in the workforce.
Brady was disappointed that ODSP rates being tied to the inflation rate won’t begin until July 2023.
