The content of this session has been developed over several years by a partnership of The McMaster Family Health Team, Hamilton Community Legal Clinic, and Core Collaborative Learning. Low income is a risk for most health outcomes. Improving income stability improves health and ability to engage in health care. Ontario Disability Supports Program (ODSP) is an excellent approach to improved income stability, and is appropriate for many people. However, many applications fail and support is often denied due to inadequate completion of the ODSP application. Common pitfalls in ODSP applications will be described. Important techniques in ensuring a high quality application will be explained.
