Coalition Activities

The Coalition works to improve ODSP by lobbying politicians, making submissions to consultations on the budget or on poverty reduction, trying to get ODSP issues raised in the media, sharing information with recipients and agencies, providing input to the Ministry of Community and Social Services, and by networking with other groups with similar goals. The actual work is carried out primarily of all by our members in their own communities, and by our committees which plan strategies on particular issues and prepare materials to assist all Coaliton members in this work.

The full Coalition meets every two months by teleconference to share news of the committee work and of what members are doing across the province.
