I wonder, if social assistance welfare (OW) payments in Ontario is loan money.
I was given a walk-in meeting with. Community Legal Clinic on November 26 of 2019 to talk to a lawyer in the afternoon after Oliver harrased me (audio file of the argument on my website). Lawyer that I met with was not able to say what changed the eligibility in Ottawa which caused to close the file and later on when file was fixed total was treated as overpayment. If there is no legal explanation to the first time file closure (what caused to changed the eligibility) than it was just an arbitrary decision. Whose decision. So now there are following questions which need to be answered by lawyers or OW welfare Department.
1) was it arbitrary decision to close file and create overpayment. What was the rationale behind it.
2) what changed the eligibility to close the file.
3) monthly payments are fixed payments so overpayment from OW to the participants/recipient can not occur.
4) If people in difficulty due to no income & no other support depend on the govt. support why are they not informed in the begining that they will be required to payback all the money like loan.
Something to think about this overpayment issue.
