The City of Windsor has implemented its contingency plan due to the ongoing Canada Post work disruption, to ensure Ontario Works clients receive their income support cheques.

All recipients who receive payments through direct deposit will continue to do so and will not be affected by the postal disruption. Recipients who receive their income supports by cheque will be required to pick them up in person. November monthly assistance cheques will be available for pick up October 30th, October 31st and November 1st.

Windsor based clients will need to pick up their cheques at:

350 City Hall Square East
Main Floor Lobby Area
Time: 1pm to 4pm

Leamington based clients will need to pick up their cheques at:

33 Princess Street, First Floor
Leamington, Ontario
Time: 1pm to 4pm

Before proceeding to the cheque distribution centre, please call 1-800-808-2268 to ensure your cheque has been printed.

Recipients need to bring two pieces of government identification, one of which must have a photo. Statements, Bus Passes, and Dental cards will be mailed.

After November 2nd, please contact your caseworker for further instructions.

For information on Dental Services call 519-255-5200 ext 5220.

Clients approved for a bus pass who receive payments by direct deposit, but have not received their direct deposit statement, must bring their previous bus pass and their 9 digit member ID number to the Transit Windsor Terminal at 300 Chatham Street West.

Clients approved for a bus pass who have picked up their cheques or have received their direct deposit statement, can take the stub to any Transit Windsor outlet to pick up their bus pass.
