The Ontario Works program provides financial and employment assistance for people who don’t have enough money for food and housing and other basic needs. If you suspect someone of receiving assistance to which they are not entitled, you can file a report.

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Name of spouse and/or child(ren)
  • Address and phone number
  • Details of suspected fraud
  • Documents to support the suspected fraud

You will get an email confirming we received the report.
