I want to apply for the Ontario Disability Support Program. Do I have to apply for Ontario Works first?

​No.  People who wish to apply for the Ontario Disability Support Program do not have to apply for Ontario Works assistance first.  They may apply directly to the Ontario Disability Support Program.  However, it can take some time for Ontario Disability Support to be granted.  If you are in immediate financial need you may wish to apply for Ontario Works assistance and a referral can be completed to the Ontario Disability Support Program.
