“It is with sincere regret that we inform you we have just received word from the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities that the Ontario Self-Employment Benefit (OSEB) program and all related services will cease, effective immediately (May 15, 2015).
No new clients will be implemented into the system effective today; luckily this decision does not affect any of our existing clients currently on the program.
We continue to work on finding solutions that will work to benefit our clients and urge you to send along any questions, comments or concerns regarding this decision to your local member of provincial parliament.”
