Raise The Rates Background
Reverse the Tory welfare cuts! A 40% increase NOW!
End 10 long years with no cost of living increase.
Justice for Welfare and ODSP recipients!

Under the Ontario Tories, general welfare rates were cut by 21.6%. Since
then, inflation has also risen by a cumulative 18.2%, boosting the real
impact of the Tory war on the poor to an astonishing 39.8%. The Liberals’3%
increase is not enough! Welfare and disability rates are currently at such
dismal levels that they are not enough to live on. The 3% raise recently
given by the Liberal Government is not much help. For a single person on
welfare it amounts to a measly $15.60/month on top of the current
$520/month. This is not acceptable! People are sick of making choices
between rent and food, clothing and transportation. People have had enough.
We deserve better.

Join Anti-capitalist Community Action and other members of your community in
organizing for an immediate increase of 40% to social assistance rates. We
are building a local Raise the Rates organization as part of a
province-wide campaign to raise the pressure on the McGuinty government to
do the right thing and Raise the Rates! Whether you receive money from
Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program, or are an ally of
those who do, we encourage you to join us in fighting to win.
