Six Nations of the Grand River Ontario Works (SNGROW)
This program is mandatory for all sole support parents and blended families with children from previous relationships. The overall purpose of this program is to PURSUE CHILD/SPOUSAL SUPPORT.

The Ontario Works Act states: "... participants must make reasonable efforts to obtain all available income. For example: child and or spousal support to which any member of the benefit unit may be entitled."

As a custodial parent in receipt of Welfare, it is mandatory to pursue any support money entitlements.

The Family Law Act states: "Every parent has an obligation to provide support for his or her unmarried child who is a minor or is enrolled in a full time program of education, to the extent the parent is able to do so."

In summary, an absent parent that is working has a legal obligation to pay support for their children.
