Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) & Arts Grants Brochure

ODSP and Arts Grant Cover

The Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) and Arts Grants brochure explains the exemption for arts grants received by people on ODSP, discusses other forms of income that artists may receive, and gives tips on dealing with possible problems. Amounts given in the brochure such as asset limits and earned income deductions are accurate as of March 2018, but may be subject to change.

This brochure was created thanks to the ODSP Action Coalition with input from members of the ODSP and Arts Grants Coalition. The ODSP and Arts Grants Coalition is made up of individual artists who have disabilities and are on ODSP as well as representatives from ACTRA Toronto, the Canadian Actors’ Equity Association, CARFAC Ontario, the Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC), the Media Arts Network of Ontario (MANO-RAMO), the Ontario Arts Council, the ODSP Action Coalition, ReelAbilities Toronto, Tangled Art + Disability, the Toronto Arts Council, and Workman Arts.
