Brighter Prospects: Transforming Social Assistance in Ontario is the long-awaited report of the Commission for the Review of Social Assistance in Ontario.
The Brighter Prospects: Transforming Social Assistance in Ontario report is available on the Commission’s website: www.socialassistancereview.ca/final-report
The report proposes major changes to Ontario’s social assistance programs. The changes would require new legislation. The future of the report and its recommendations is uncertain because of the Ontario Premier’s prorogation of the Ontario Legislature.
