What I should know about ODSP employment supports
The employment supports program is a voluntary program that helps people with
disabilities find and keep a job. The program can also help people with disabilities
become self-employed. Some examples of the supports that may be available
include:

  • Interpreter/intervenor services
  • Transportation assistance
  • Assistive devices and training to use them
  • Tools and equipment
  • Special clothing

  • Other items you may need for work

To be eligible for employment supports you must:

  • Be 16 years of age or older
  • Be a resident of Ontario
  • Be willing and able to work
  • Have a disability that is expected to last one year or more, and your
    disability makes it hard for you to find or keep a job
