The Racialization of Poverty: Understanding Opportunities and Barriers in Income Support for Racialized Clients
Across Ontario, racialized communities are facing poverty and income insecurity at disproportionately higher rates. While income supports are available through provincial and federal programs, we know that mental and physical health can look quite different for racialized communities, and that there are many unique barriers to accessing support.

Join jasleen kaur johal of the South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario to explore the history of South Asian communities in Canada and Ontario, and the realities on poverty in these and other racialized communities. Gain a deeper understanding of the distinct barriers these communities face, learn more about available income supports and how clients can access them, and understand how our legal system can be leveraged to secure needed income support for racialized populations facing mental and physical health challenges.

This Webinar is FREE for Ontario Registered Social Workers (RSW), Registered Social Service Workers (RSSW) and Students of Social Work and Social Service Work Programs. Please note: If you are not an RSW, RSSW or student of these programs in Ontario, you may still attend but will be charged a nominal fee of $40.

This Employment Ontario project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.
