ODIWG needs your help!

We do not have a large budget as all of our work is done on a volunteer basis. We do not charge any fees to injured workers to assist them. Local non-profit organizations can also use us for reference and resource material, and direct assistance, counselling to either injured workers or through their representative. Volunteers will also learn about the worker's compensation system

If you have some time to volunteer, we need you.

If your organization could assist us financially in any way it would be much appreciated even a small donation will help pay for stamps or photocopier paper. We thank you in advance for your generosity.

Note: Make cheques payable to the Ottawa and District Injured Workers Group.
