This module takes a look at the Ontario Disability Program Act (ODSPA), an income tested maintenance program available to persons deemed disabled by the Province of Ontario. Topics will include the application process, determining financial and medical eligibility and the benefits provided to successful applicants. The rights to appeal adverse decisions will be reviewed. After some case studies, the role of the lay advocate in assisting persons with ODSP problems will be discussed.
