It depends on how/why the debt to Ontario Works was created. If you received benefits when you were not entitled to them because you either fialed to report income or misreported income then the debt amy NOT be discharged.

If the debt was incurred through no fault or your own then it likely can.

Make sure you discuss this debt in detail with your trustee BEFORE you decide to file – that way there won’t be any surprises.
