FAQs

NO! OWIP is completely free for job seekers and employers.

What kind of job seeker does OWIP serve?

An OWIP client:
– has faced barriers but is motivated to work
– is interested in enhancing his or her essential skills in order to find employment
– can complete personalized pre-employment sessions, workshops, wage subsidy programs, and more
– OWIP clients will be prepared to work and job search independently

I am a part-time student. Am I eligible to participate in the OWIP program?

Part-time students with disabilities are eligible, so long as they are not enrolled in more than 19 hours of class-time per week, and they are interested in finding employment.

What are your business hours?

Our business hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm. Our office is closed on all statutory holidays.

Do I have to be in receipt of income support like ODSP or OW to be eligible for OWIP?

NO! Receiving ODSP or OW support is not a requirement. OWIP clients must NOT be eligible for benefits under Employment Insurance (EI).

What do you mean by ‘disability’?

OWIP does not require medical proof of a disability. You simply have to declare you are a person with a disability as CCRW is a cross-disability organization. OWIP clients may have physical, visible and/or invisible disabilities (such as anxiety, depression, and learning disabilities) and/or medical or episodic barriers to employment.
