Many low-income Canadians, particularly single working age adults with disabilities and no labour market attachment, are being forgotten and left behind during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

ODSP Action Coalition recently sent THIS LETTER to Prime Minister Trudeau et al, requesting the following: 

- Immediately continue the emergency GST benefit introduced in April to be distributed retroactively and monthly from May to at least September 2020, subject to review at that time. This modest top-up, as your government has already shown, can be easily and quickly implemented and will help all low-income individuals, including many single people with disabilities that are being forgotten.

- Further encourage and enforce to the fullest extent possible your government’s stated intention that the CERB not be clawed back in whole or in part by any and all provincial/territorial government programs.

We encourage everyone: Please show your support for those being forgotten during COVID-19 by adding your name to this petition and forwarding our letter to your own MP letting them know how you feel regarding this important issue. And please feel free to share widely. This isn’t just an Ontario issue. This is a Canadian issue.
