Are you on OW or ODSP? Do you have pre-diabetes?

If you are on OW or ODSP and have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes by your health care provider, you are once again eligible for a Special Diet Allowance (SDA) to pay for the kinds of food that you need to eat to help treat your pre-diabetes and help prevent you from developing diabetes.

You can get a Special Diet Allowance application form from your OW or ODSP caseworker.

Instructions on filling out the form are available here.

If you lost your pre-diabetes Special Diet Allowance after the government changed the list of eligible conditions, you should re-apply.

You can also contact your local Community Legal Clinic if you need help with this issue. To find your local clinic, go to
