#FinancialFridays: Financial Assistance for Veterans
Tomorrow is Remembrance Day. Remembrance Day gives us a chance to pause and think of our Veterans. We want to share information about the Ontario Soldier’s Aid Commission and this financial assistance for Veterans and their eligible family members in financial need.
The Ontario Soldiers’ Aid Commission can provide up to $2,000 a year to Veterans and their eligible family members in financial need. It can help pay for essentials including:
• securing or maintaining housing
• specialized equipment and assistive devices
• health-related items and services
• personal items and basic needs support
• employment supports
Funding from the Soldiers’ Aid Commission is in addition to any financial assistance from Ontario Works or ODSP. It will not impact eligibility for social assistance or your monthly payment.
For more information about the Soldiers’ Aid Commission, eligibility for funding, and how to apply, please visit ontario.ca/SoldiersAid or call 416-327-4674.
Thank you to all our Veterans for your service.
