About the ODSP Action Coalition

The ODSP Action Coalition is a province-wide coalition of community disability agencies, provincial organizations, anti-poverty groups, legal clinics and people with disabilities on ODSP.

The coalition was formed in 2002 following province-wide community consultations that found serious problems with the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), which many people with disabilities depend on for their survival.

People on ODSP face much stereotyping and discrimination as they struggle to deal with physical and mental disabilities. Each person's situation is unique. What is shared is a life of poverty.
