There's another more recent article about this, on this website. But it's pretty much the same shit.
Apparently, for December 2015, as with December 2014, it's coming out on the 22nd. But every other month it's the last banking/business/non-holiday/weekday of the month.
Since no government website will answer this question, here's the magic formula for divining ODSP payment dates: it's on the last day of the month, unless that falls on a weekend or holiday, in which case it's on the friday before that. Or if that friday's a holiday, then the day before that. Whichever non-holiday, non-weekend day, as in, whichever bank day is the last bank day of the month.
It's not on the last friday of every month. Just the months where the last day is not a "workday."
So that means that this page is wrong.
Welfare, they don't mind saying when the dates are. ODSP, for some reason, it's a secret. And the reason for the secrecy is also a secret!
Note: It's also hard to find out how much money people on ODSP receive. Well, a single person on ODSP, without special accommodations for care or mobility equipment etc, can expect to receive about a thousand bucks. Whoop dee doo dah day.
So, Welfare (OW) = ~ $650/mo, ODSP = ~ $1000/mo, either way, you = poor. So poor.
How poor? Well, the poverty line is about $1800/mo. So, if you're on welfare, you're like, superpoor. You're poor times two. If you're on ODSP, and your disability magically costs you nothing, then you're poor times 1.5. But since your disability does cost you extra money, you're somewhere between superpoor (x2) and uberpoor (x3, as in, two-thirds of the way between the poverty line and zero) ...and of course, if you're on zero benefits, then you are officially destitute, as in, you have zero income, and you also can't prove you're poor, so you have nothing. Those people are really the only people who should need a meal program, and then only for a couple of days, once in a blue moon.
