Guelph Wellington Legal Clinic provides an online check-up to help people who are living in poverty so they can identify legal problems and get help. If you do not have enough money to live on, a good home or job, or family, social and health supports, your legal health may be at risk.
A project of CLEO, Your Legal Rights is a website of free legal information for people in Ontario. This site has free, practical, and easy-to-find legal information produced by hundreds of organizations across Ontario.

If you are denied CPP-d, you have 90 days from when you are notified of the decision to ask Service Canada for a review of the decision. You may wish to provide additional medical information for the review. If you are denied again, you may appeal that decision to the Social Services Tribunal (SST). You have 90 days from the date of the reconsideration decision to make an appeal. All the documents that you want to rely on at the hearing should be submitted 30 days before the hearing. If you are denied CPP-d at the SST, there are further court appeals.
