If my passport is expired , but less then 5 years expired can I use it for ID to get my G1?

Comment:

Hello and thank you for your question!

Unfortunately, an expired passport is not acceptable proof of ID to apply for your G1 drivers' licence. Please visit the "Acceptable documents" page of Ontario.ca or Settlement.org "How do I apply for a dirvers' licence" page for more information. 

We hope this helps.

Im currently living at home, but things between me and my mother are getting harder and harder to deal with. I feel like im losing my mind and i just dont know how much more i can take. Is it possible for me to get on student welfare? I am in school and i have a part time job but it isnt enough for me to afford my own place so i cant move out on my own. I dont have many hours because of school, i dont want to overwhelm myself. But is it possible for me to get on OW?

Hi, 

I am a recipent on ODSP that wants to go to Post-seconary. However I need OSAP to cover my expenses for college. Will applying for OSAP affect my elgibility for ODSP?

Comment:

Hello and thank you for your question.

OSAP is meant to cover your educational costs (tuitions fees, textbooks, supplies, and local transportation) not your living expenses. Even if you are an ODSP recipient, you should still qualify for OSAP.

Please visit  the Applying for OSAP  section of our site. Or if you need more information you can visit the ODSP Income Support Directive or Students in Special Circumstances.

I hope that helps.
