Tenants on social assistance may be late in paying their rent next due to a computer glitch, the province is warning landlords in eleven municipalities.
A processing error will affect some 17,000 Ontario Works recipients who have pre-arranged for a portion of their cheque to be automatically deducted to pay for rent or utilities.
Clients should expect to receive a lump sum in their bank accounts, meaning they will be personally responsible for paying their bills. The error did not produce any over-payments, according to the Ministry of Community and Social Services.
Areas impacted include Toronto, Brantford, Cochrane, Kawartha Lakes, London, Niagara, Northumberland, Ottawa, Parry Sound, Peel and Windsor.
