Your cheque is not in the mail.
Despite postal carriers being ordered back to work by Ottawa, the District is reminding residents your Ontario Works cheque will not be mailed out. District officials decided against mailing cheques due to warnings from Canada Post over a backlog of mail caused by the rotating strikes.
Cheques can be picked up today at any of the district offices around Muskoka.
If you have questions or concerns you can call the Ontario Works Office at 705-645-2412.
