Brighter Prospects, the final report of the Commission for the Review of Social Assistance in Ontario, was issued October 24, 2012.

In this webinar, Jennefer Laidley of the Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) provides an understanding of

  • the content of the report and recommendations;
  • an analysis of the impact of the recommendations;
  • the policy and political context surrounding the report; and,
  • thoughts on opportunities for action over the short, medium, and longer term.


This webinar was conducted for members of the community legal clinic system and their community-based partner groups; however, we recorded the webinar for other interested individuals and groups to watch.
