Erica, a past Ontario Works client

Everyone used to say I was too stupid to finish high school or ever go to college. I am proving them wrong. I’m clean, and a good mom. I’m graduating high school, and going to college in the fall for physiotherapy.

I have lots of goals. I’m excited to work and make money. I’d like to buy a house and a car and say that the stuff is mine and I didn’t have to depend on Ontario Works to pay for it. I’m grateful for what they did for me, but I will be off assistance next month.
