The Ontario Works rates will be increasing on October 1, 2017. If you’re a GWA-OW Calculator software user, the rates were already programmed into the software as part of update 1.10 that was released back on July 13, 2017.
The current version of the software is 1.10.1. Please make sure that your software is up-to-date before issuing your October social assistance payments!
If you are not running the current version of the software, you will need to update your software by going to the System menu and choosing option M-Update Software. If you are currently using a version of the software that is lower than version 1.10, the Update Software option will be found under letter O on the System menu.
