Hi Sylva,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us. We understand that this is a difficult time to be finding work, we hope to provide you with some assistance by sharing some helpful information.

If you have not found work, you may be eligible for the Ontario Works benefit. This benefit provides people with financial and employment assistance while they continue their job search. You can read more about the eligibility criteria for Ontario Works here.

Settlement.Org also has a Financial Assistance section, where you can find information on various government programs and financial supports you may be eligible for.

You may want to connect with a settlement agency that provides employment services using our Services Near Me section. Settlement agencies can also help you find financial assistance options.

It may also help to connect with a community resource navigator at 211 to narrow your search. 211 Ontario is a free, confidential service. Their phone service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Here is a link to their live chat if you prefer to communicate online. Their live chat service is available Monday to Friday from 7am-9pm ET.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

We hope this information is helpful.
