We’ll have a booth at the trade show of the Manitoba First Nation Social Development: Enhancing Capacity Forum that will take place at the Canad Inns Destination Centre Polo Park in Winnipeg March 20-22, 2018. Stop by our booth to see our Income Assistance Manager software program in action. You’ll be able to take home a detailed information booklet about the Income Assistance Manager software and find out about the other software programs that we have on offer.

It’s that time of year when you need to print T5007 Statement of Social Assistance Payments slips for your social assistance clients.

The slips must be given to clients by February 28, 2017 and this is also the same date by which you must have sent the T5007 Summary of Benefits form to the Canada Revenue Agency.

Complete details on how to complete the entire process of issuing the slips and sending the sending the summary form to the CRA can be found within the email that we sent today to all GWA-OW Calculator software users.

The Ontario Works rates will be increasing on October 1, 2017. If you’re a GWA-OW Calculator software user, the rates were already programmed into the software as part of update 1.10 that was released back on July 13.

The current version of the software is 1.10.1. Please make sure that your software is up-to-date before issuing your October social assistance payments!

If you are not running the current version of the software, you will need to update your software by going to the System menu and choosing option M-Update Software. If you are currently using a version of the software that is lower than version 1.10, the Update Software option will be found under letter O on the System menu.
