Do I have to pursue child and/or spousal support from my ex-spouse if I am on Ontario Works?

Yes.  As a condition of eligibility, all applicants or recipients are required to pursue any financial resources that they may be entitled to including child and/or spousal support.  The County of Simcoe has a team of specialized workers who assist people to obtain child and/or spousal support either through private agreements or court proceedings.  Eligibility for assistance will depend on a person's willingness to pursue these resources.​
