OSOT Provides Insight on Ontario’s Portable Benefits Program

In March 2022, the Portable Benefits Advisory Panel was created to plan and implement a program for workers in Ontario that do not have employer-provided benefits. The Advisory Panel has requested input regarding the program.

OSOT submitted a written submission on December 16, 2022, outlining our recommendations. We emphasize community access to mental health and rehabilitative services, stability for health care workers and recognition for occupational therapy services.

Our responses have been received by the Portable Benefits Advisory Panel. Submissions will be analyzed for their 2023 recommendations.
