Ontario Works cheques and statements
On June 30, Ontario Works payments and direct deposit statements for July, including monthly drug cards, must be picked up in person. You will need to show valid photo ID.
Please go to the Oxford County office where your client service worker is located:
Woodstock (all sites)-Oxford County Administration Building, 21 Reeve Street
Ingersoll-Community Employment Services, 37 Alma Street (behind IDCI)
Tillsonburg-Livingston Centre, 90 Tillson Avenue
This change is taking place now because Canada Post workers may stop work in July. If this happens, mail won’t be delivered until they return to work.
